Chalkbeat, a great source of education news and research I recommend all teachers and leaders peruse regularly, has just announced they are going to have a Great American Teach-Off in March 2018. I encourage any math teacher in the Archdiocese who is interested to read more and consider applying before the January 19 submission deadline.
The editor-in-chief of Chalkbeat, Elizabeth Green, writes extensively here about why this Teach-Off is such a great idea for making teaching practice public. Even if you think you may not be ready to apply for this kind of "competition," I highly recommend you take some time to read Green's post and consider what teaching and learning would look like if we had lesson study systems in place like those she mentions observing in Japan. Lesson study is something the CSO is looking into currently, considering what it might look like throughout the Archdiocese. Reach out if you would like to be a part of that planning and conversation!
