Teaching American History
This large urban district plans to use a teacher-of-teachers model in which 45 fifth, eighth, and eleventh grade teachers are taught to be teacher trainers. They in turn will help carry out on-site and summer institute professional development with an additional 385 teachers in the same grades. The emphasis is on content training, with a secondary emphasis on instructional delivery. The partners in this project are the California State University Long Beach and the Long Beach Community College.
