Teacher Perspectives on Accelerating Learning, Leadership, and Innovation in the Pandemic
Posted by Teach Plus on October 13, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic forced school closures for millions of students across the country, teachers have shown that they are so much more than deliverers of content.
They build trusted relationships with students and families. They identify what inspires each student, leveraging the science of learning to invest in the whole child. They identify what works, and lead transformation in their schools, districts, and states. They leverage technology, creative student groupings, and blended learning to personalize instruction to maximize the potential of each individual learner. They are lowering barriers and building and strengthening bridges to students, families, and one another.
“Barriers to Bridges: Teacher Perspectives on Accelerating Learning, Leadership, and Innovation in the Pandemic” examines the frontline experiences of educators during the COVID-19 pandemic and provides recommendations for education leaders and policymakers based on teachers’ guidance and input. The report is based on the feedback from 532 teachers in 152 virtual focus groups held across 25 states.
