It’s happening in Oakland, though. You can read more about the purpose and the early work of a largely teacher-led project, the Effective Teaching Task Force, here. The story ran over the weekend.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED: The task force makes a stop tomorrow (Wednesday) on its “Teachers Talking to Teachers” listening tour. This one is for high school and adult education teachers, and it takes place at 2 p.m. Wednesday in the gym of United for Success Academy (Calvin Simmons campus), 2101 35th Avenue. Another event, for pre-k through eighth-grade teachers, is scheduled on March 23, at the same time and place.
Want to represent your school at an Oakland teacher convention in Emeryville April 7-9? Delegate elections — two for each school — are scheduled to take place at faculty meetings the week of March 7-11.
Pedro Noguera and Linda Darling-Hammond are speaking at the Oakland Museum of California at 6 p.m. March 10 and 28, respectively, as part of a speaker series. For details on these and other events, and to learn more about the teaching task force, visit the task force’s web page.
