Instructional Growth for Equity
In this year-long learning experience, teachers will engage in a research-based process to promote instructional growth and equity in the classroom. Educators will have an opportunity to reflect on their practice, generate questions regarding efficacy, gather data through observations, and receive feedback to promote new understandings and new practices.
