On August 11, 2010, Chalkboard hosted an advocacy training day to help Oregon teachers learn about the legislative process, and how they can most effectively advocate for the education policies they want to see in Oregon.
On May 26, 2010, Chalkboard brought the 12 CLASS districts together in Salem for one last meeting of the 2009-2010 school year. Successes were applauded, ideas were shared, and next steps started to take shape. All in all, it was a great day filled with insightful conversation around teaching and the support that educators need.
This paper, in partnership with Marylhurst University, serves to help contextualize the conversation around teacher effectiveness. It is an introduction to a much-needed dialogue around teacher effectiveness.
