AR Co-Teaching Project's Professional Development Opportunity for 2016-17
The Arkansas (AR) Co-Teaching Project is excited to continue its partnership with the Center for Technology in Education (CTE) at Johns Hopkins University to offer Arkansas schools two Boundless Learning Co-Teaching professional development packages. These are blended, comprehensive, year-long packages.
The Boundless Learning Co-Teaching package for co-teachers and administrators is designed to build productive 21st century co-teaching partnerships that are clear about their mission, goals, and roles. Co-teachers will learn to effectively co-plan, co-instruct, and co-assess so that all students, including their students with disabilities, reach academic and behavioral targets.
The School-Based Facilitator’s Boundless Learning Co-Teaching package for literacy/math instructional facilitators is designed to create a cadre of instructional facilitators capable of supporting co-teachers in transferring the information gained during their professional development activities into their co-taught classrooms.
Schools may purchase the basic package which includes only the Boundless Learning Co-Teaching or the combined package which includes both the Boundless Learning Co-Teaching, as well as the School-Based Facilitator’s Boundless Learning Co-Teaching. Both Boundless Learning Co-Teaching professional development packages are appropriate for schools interested in starting a co-teaching program or increasing the effectiveness of an existing co-teaching program.
The Boundless Learning Co-Teaching Basic Package* includes:
- One face-to-face introductory professional development session
- Six facilitated, interactive online modules
- Electronic learning communities
- Two on-site co-teaching coaching visits
- Six virtual administrator support meetings
- Pre/post evaluation of implementation
* The Combined Package includes all of the above, with additional resources designed to help literacy and math instructional facilitators
Deadline for applying is August 31, 2016.
