Teacher/Leader Quality Partnerships Professional Development
Professional development opportunities are a collaborative effort between partner schools, Hofstra University faculty members and educational consultants. Yearly, the planning committee reviews studies on teaching and learning. Research has shown that teachers gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter and they refine pedagogical skills when they learn together and support one another while planning lessons. Commonly discussed strategies include accountability, classroom management, coaching, New York State Common Core Standards and tasks, differentiated learning as well as other teaching methods.
