Initial Reviewer Training
with Carly Weiland Quiros
December 8, 15, 22, 2021: Successful completion of the TEAM Initial Reviewer Training will enable participants to review TEAM reflection papers and projects to determine if there is sufficient evidence to successfully meet the TEAM module criteria. The training will consist of 3 two-hour facilitated online sessions and pre-work for each session.
IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION: In order to successfully complete the training, participants must complete all pre-work and session activities in the order of presentation. That means that if participants are unable to complete any of the pre-work or sessions, they will have to finish the training by registering for and attending the missed sessions and completing the pre-work at another training. Therefore, it is important that participants only register for a training where they know that they will be able to attend each of the three sessions and complete the pre-work.
Initial Support Teacher Training
with Carly Weiland Quiros
This 3-day virtual training (January 13, 20, & 27, 2022) prepares individuals, who have been selected by their districts, to be mentors who will support beginning and student teachers. Training is based on Connecticut’s Common Core of Teaching (CCT), which articulates the foundational standards for all teachers in Connecticut and is linked by state law and regulations to requirements across a teacher’s career including educator preparation, induction, evaluation and professional learning. Participants will focus on coaching skills needed to help beginning teachers become reflective practitioners and learn how to provide support to new teachers through instructional modules.
This virtual training includes approximately 2 days of learning over the course of:
- Three 2-hour synchronous (live) learning sessions
- Asynchronous pre-work learning tasks that can be completed at your own pace prior to each synchronous (live) session
Participants must complete all parts of the virtual training to be qualified to serve in the role of mentor or cooperating teacher.
A zoom link will be provided as we get closer to the start of the first session.
