Today, urban teachers are faced with enormous challenges ranging from learning deficits to emotional problems that can impact learning ability. These challenges coupled with rigorous testing requirements often make it hard for urban schools to attract and retain good teachers. And, that’s where Teaching Matters™ steps in. TM works with schools to give teachers
the tools they need to support each other in lesson planning and instruction, so that students learn more and teachers feel supported in the process. Your vote will support these partnerships that not only are proven effective but also ensure that urban students are given access to the quality education they deserve.
AdoptAClassroom.org puts teachers with under-supplied classrooms in touch with community donors. These partnerships have not only helped to raise teacher and student morale through well-supplied classrooms, they’ve also brought back the return of hands-on learning.
Center for Inspired Teaching creates programming for teachers, that allows them to become instigators of thought. This means teaching students not what to think, but rather how to think. The end result is a more engaging and joyful learning experience for both teacher and student.
