"Teacher Leadership Roadmap"

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015 from 6-7PM EST

This brief session is designed as an introduction to the paper "Leading from the Front of the Classroom: A Roadmap for Teacher Leadership that Works."  Teacher leaders apply key insights from the paper by designing new teacher leadership roles, using the backwards design process in the paper.  Teacher leaders will also explore best practices and pitfalls from emerging teacher leader models at the school, district, and state level.  Finally, participants will engage in a discussion around policy implications for future teacher leadership initiatives.
