Teacher-Led Professional Learning (TLPL)
Paid Opportunity to Lead your Peers
A partnership between the Five District Partnership and Teach Plus
The 5DP Teacher-Led Professional Learning initiative was founded on the premise that empowering exceptional teachers, like YOU, and leveraging your content expertise, is integral to ensuring excellent instruction for all students in the Five District Partnership. We are currently seeking outstanding Teacher Leaders – from Revere, Malden, Everett, Chelsea and Winthrop school districts - to lead professional learning, preferably within one of the following best practice areas:
- Reaching all Learners
- Culturally Proficient Strategies
- Math Big Ideas
- Text Based Writing/Writing Across the Content Areas
- Social-Emotional Learning
As a Teacher Leader you will be designated as an adjunct professor through UMass Boston and earn a $1,500 stipend.
What is the TLPL model?
- A cohort of teachers – led by current teachers with expertise in standards-based instruction – working together throughout the Five District Partnership to promote collaboration and elevate teacher leadership.
- 3 full day workshops at the beginning of July. Lunch provided.
- Content/grade level-specific support in disseminating best practices
Prior to the beginning of the sessions, you will collaborate with one another to:
- Hone Your Expert Skills: Participate in twelve hours of training and discussions related to facilitating effective professional development to adult learners.
- Collaborate: Review, analyze and discuss standards-based instruction with fellow Teacher Leaders and determine additional resources, discussion protocols and skillful team facilitation.
- Differentiate: Plan individual sessions related to specific grade level or content areas.
