Cleveland Regional Novice Teacher Institute
Cleveland Public Schools will be hosting the Regional Novice Teacher Institute in the summer of 2019. We invite all area school districts to send teachers within their first two years of teaching to attend a two week intensive experience.
If you are in the Cleveland area and want to commit a group of teachers to the Cleveland Regional Novice Teacher Institute, please fill out this form.
TLI's Flagship Program
Given the number of emergency certified teachers in our state, and the upcoming void left as our most experienced teachers retire, TLI provides professional development to novice teachers. Specifically, we will ground our training in best practices to expedite the growth that all new teachers must make in order to be effective leaders in their classrooms. We will ensure that all teachers understand the theory behind and are able to implement strategies that work to drive student achievement in their classrooms.
-Scope of development
-Coaching and development model
The overall approach to training and development is centered on a practice-based approach. The “Competence-Supportive Coaching Model” was developed as part of Dr. Lein’s doctoral research and has been tested and empirically supported to improve teacher competence and performance. This approach has been utilized by Collegiate Hall and is the basis for other coaching resources such as “Get Better Faster” by Paul Bambrick-Santoyo. These “mastery experiences” allow for teachers to experience quick wins in small instructional practices and build confidence before entering the classroom. These methods continue to be utilized throughout each coaching event.
The initial pilot of teacher training has occurred over three years at Collegiate Hall Charter School. In Collegiate Hall’s first three years, 70% of teachers had no previous teaching experience before joining the school. Despite this, teacher averaged the following results:
- On a measure of college-readiness on the MAP test, Collegiate Hall seventh grade students finished first in the nation in reading (86% of students in the top quartile) and second in the nation in math (69% of students in the top quartiles) compared to other schools started with the Building Excellent Schools Fellowship.
- The academic achievement for the 2017-18 academic year includes:
- Students grew an average of 1.83 grade levels in math, putting Collegiate Hall in the top 1% of schools for growth nationally
- Students grew an average of 1.89 grade levels in reading, putting Collegiate Hall in the top 1% of schools for growth nationally
- Students grew an average of 2.36 grade levels in science, putting Collegiate Hall in the top 1% of schools for growth nationally
