Teaching Trust's Ed Fellows Program prepares educators to deepen their instructional competence and expand their scope of influence on their campuses.
Through the Ed Fellows Program, educators will build their instructional competence and their influence as leaders on their campuses. Through the Instructional Leadership Cohort, fellows receive training and coaching on high-leverage, research-based instructional strategies proven to boost student achievement. Through the Adult Leadership Cohort, fellows learn to conduct in-depth data analysis, action-plan using student data, hold others accountable, and lead high-quality professional development. Over the course of the year, fellows plan and implement either a Campus-Based Action Project or Classroom-Based Action Project crafted to significantly boost student achievement. The Ed Fellows Program helps educators reach their greatest potential as leaders, instructors, and change-makers to improve the lives of students across DFW.
MONTHLY CONTENT SESSIONS
Ed Fellows attend monthly in-person content sessions with their cohort to learn expert mind frames and high-leverage actions to take back to their classrooms and campuses. Sessions are a mix of rigorous content delivery, cohort collaboration, and action planning to ensure that Ed Fellows are fully equipped to take these new strategies and skills back to their campuses.
COACHING & SUPPORT
Ed Fellows receive targeted feedback and development from a Teaching Trust coach, focused on:
- Implementing proven instructional practices at the classroom level to drive student gains
- Developing leadership capacity to influence student achievement across a grade or school
Coaching and support from a Teaching Trust coach may include on-campus observations, one-on-one debrief and coaching sessions, and/or feedback provided on written plans or instructional videos.
THE COHORT EXPERIENCE
Ed Fellows will work with other like-minded educators to problem-solve and action-plan through challenges, to share best-practices, and to provide feedback and support. Educators will learn and grow together, both personally and professionally.
