The Teaching and Learning Foundation offers complete instructional support programs for in-service teachers and their students
100% of teachers have new assignments at some point in their career. Certainly they do when they first start as a novice teacher, then again, occasionally as an experienced teacher. The Expert Systems for Teachers™ is a practical, economical solution in situations where teachers need to be not only 1) technically highly-qualified by passing a general subject-area test, but also 2) prepared with subject-specific instructional and mentoring support to be a highly-effective teacher for a specific course within the subject area. If you are just starting to teach a course for the first time or have taught it for a year or two, these instructional supports will be helpful in getting any teacher “up to speed.”
What's best for me?
Below are listed 3 ``just-in-time`` options to assist with school and district teacher recruitment, development and retention issues. These options address the needs of teachers with new subject assignments, whether novice, experienced, technically qualified or not.
Expert Systems for Teachers®
Individual Teachers with new assignments may find subject-specific instructional support and subject-specific mentoring teacher access through the Expert Systems for Teachers® Series helpful. This support may be ordered at the Teaching-Point.net Catalog pages and shopping cart or through school P.O.
Individual teachers who want or need additional subject-area certification or credit toward license renewal may enroll in any of over 100 subject-specific online courses (includes all the elements of Option 1) may enroll through participating universities in subject-specific online courses.
Combined Subscription Service
Schools or Districts wanting to address their recruitment, development and retention issues may subscribe to a combined subscription service program of 1) Expert Systems for Teachers® with its subject-specific instructional support for teachers and 2) eTAP (Teacher Assistance Program) that provides a personalized student learning and remedial program with and administrative student tracking. This subscription service provides access to the entire series of both the Expert Systems for Teachers® and eTAP.
