Culture for Learning
The Teachership Focus Area is intended to support teachers early in their career (with less than 3 years of teaching experience) to build a student-centered classroom. Finding ways to support new teachers remains a complex problem of practice in education, however, with an understanding that teachers make the greatest difference to student achievement, preparing teachers becomes glaringly clear. It’s essential now more than ever with inconsistent changes to modes of instruction, straining academic expectations, and the re-prioritization of social-emotional needs that new teachers must tackle, in addition to the traditional challenges early educators typically experience. We, at BetterLesson, believe the topics we have chosen to cover highlight the greatest needs of new teachers, now and in the future.
