With new demands facing educators it may be hard to remember why you became a teacher in the first place. You may feel pressured by new assessments, standards, school report cards, the quality rating and improvement system, funding or new teacher evaluations. While the pace of change may be overwhelming, ultimately, you know that connecting with and understanding children is what is important. This self-paced training decodes the research behind many educational reforms using an easy-to-understand framework based on the Five I's of Accomplished Teaching: Intentionality, Integration, Inquiry, Inclusion, and Innovation. This five-contact hour training spans three weeks and provides opportunities to try out the Five I's, examine your own practice, participate in a professional learning community and ultimately reconnect with kids.
