“Through the work in the Algebra Collaborative, I felt more prepared to coach an Algebra 1 teacherusing high quality tasks. We were able to work together to set up situations and ask questions that caused students to have to dig beyond the surface of an algorithm or procedure."
Amanda Powers, Anderson County
“Now, every time I am in a school, I have ELA teachers talking about the Bootcamps, asking me questions about how to best implement their standards, and suggesting that I work with other teachers who did not attend on different pieces from the training. For many of the teachers who attended, it has rejuvenated their passion for teaching simply because they are now looking at their standards through a different lens."
Susan Loveless, Rutherford County
"Unlike many PD sessions that focus on the "how" of the teaching, the Bootcamps focused on the "what". This focused training left participants with practical take-aways that will guide their instruction and planning to ensure they are teaching the content required by the standards."
