In the Teacher Practice Networks initiative, facilitated by the Center for the Future of Teaching & Learning, districts and outside organizations partner to leverage their combined expertise to develop teacher leadership skills; deepen content pedagogical knowledge; and support meaningful, teacher-to-teacher professional learning.
This CenterView discusses the work of the initiative, including:
- A framework for teacher leadership roles and responsibilities focused on improving instructional practices
- District conditions and practices that foster teacher leadership
- Benefits to partnering with an organization to build and strengthen systemwide teacher leadership
- Resources for planning, implementing and sustaining teacher leadership
This issue is the first in a series on teacher leadership for supporting teachers in advancing college- and career-readiness instructional practices.
