Have you heard about reimaginED?
Step Up for Students has a blog called reimaginED that examines and reports on how expanded education choice options are transforming K-12 education in Florida and the nation.
How many times have you wished for more adults in the classroom with you? Arizona State University’s new teacher education program is designed to do just that! It’s team teaching reinvented, and you can read about in on our reimaginED blog. Here’s a peek: “Each team shares about 150 students and is comprised of at least three certified teachers and a lead teacher, who both instructs and manages the classroom. Other educators join the core depending on students’ needs. Their roles include special educators, teachers of English language learners, teacher candidates who are completing residencies, and paraeducators… Instruction incorporates project- and inquiry-based learning to allow students to learn more deeply. Teachers are joined by community partners who also serve as team members. Gone is the traditional bell schedule.”
