The U.S. Department of Education (ED) will hold 14 Teacher-to-Teacher regional workshops for teachers to learn from fellow educators who have had success in raising student achievement. A number of workshops will focus on enhancing teaching skills in math, science, and critical foreign languages, subjects central to the American Competitiveness Initiative. The workshops will be held across the country from June through August. Four will cover the whole range of subjects taught in elementary and secondary schools; three are cosponsored by the National Park Service and will be dedicated to math, science, and history; four are cosponsored by TechNet Partners and are geared solely to math and science; two will focus on the teaching of foreign languages; and one will focus only on the teaching of reading and English as a Second Language. The workshops are part of the department’s Teacher-to-Teacher initiative, designed to support teachers, keep them informed of the latest strategies, and disseminate research that helps their students meet high standards.
