Every teacher wants every child to succeed and learn. So what does it take to deliver great classroom instruction? The Center for Educational Leadership works with teachers to identify effective instructional practice, so they can immediately implement those practices into their teaching. We work with principals, assistant principals, content coaches, curriculum specialists, teacher leaders and classroom teachers to identify student-learning issues and enhance instruction.
Using research-based methods, our experienced education experts work side-by-side to help teachers:
- Identify the key dimensions of effective teaching and learning.
- Make immediate changes to classroom practice by receiving coaching and modeling.
- Collaborate with principals and other instructional leaders to achieve student goals.
