Announcing the U.S. Department of Education’s Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative 2005 Summer Workshops

Building on the success of last year’s teacher workshops, the U.S. Department of Education will again host a series of workshops for teachers and principals in the summer of 2005.  Some of the nation’s best teachers and researchers will share their strategies for raising student achievement and informing teachers of the latest, successful research-based practices.  The upcoming Teacher-to-Teacher Summer Workshops will be geared toward K-12 teachers and principals, and the subjects covered will be evenly distributed among elementary and secondary school instruction.  Breakout sessions will cover the content areas of literacy, reading, mathematics, science, history and the arts.  Additional sessions will be held on special education, English language learners, school leadership, the No Child Left Behind Act, using data effectively, federal grant writing, and teaching strategies that can enable all levels of students to improve academically.

The 2005 Summer Workshops are scheduled in these six cities on the following dates: Cincinnati, Ohio (June 20-22); Phoenix, Arizona. (June 27-29); Minneapolis, Minnesota (July 11-13); Tampa, Florida (July 18-20); Bethesda, Maryland (July 25-27); and San Jose, California (August 1-3). 

The registration and professional development sessions are free-of-charge.  Meals and refreshments will be provided during scheduled workshop activities, but participants will be responsible for their own transportation and lodging expenses.
