May 14, 2013

BetterLesson Summer Training Program:

BetterLesson seeks a recent college graduate or a current graduate school student (preferably interested in or pursuing a degree in education) to participate in a summer training program. We continue to grow the Master Teacher Project and enhance our current site offerings, and seek curious, high-energy, individuals to aid us as we undertake this adventure! As a small start-up, we will accept applications from recent graduates and current graduate students who want to work hard and get their hands dirty assisting in a wide variety of projects. Candidates should be interested in learning about educational technology and should have a desire to support teachers. They will work closely with the Master Teacher Project staff but will interface with the wider BetterLesson team. This is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated, thoughtful individuals looking to learn and grow this summer.

BetterLesson Master Teacher Project Overview:

The Master Teacher Project is a natural outgrowth of BetterLesson’s mission to connect teachers in order to measurably improve instruction. Generously funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Project aims to make quality Common Core aligned, year-long courses, units and lessons freely available to teachers everywhere beginning with Math, Grades 6-12. Even more, this project hopes to provide real recognition and professional opportunities to exceptional teachers around the country. During this initial pilot program,  42 math Master Teachers will create and share lessons on BetterLesson.  These fully articulated courses will be freely available and easily remixable. Master Teachers will also share complementary material in the form of hints, tips and reflections, which will endow their lessons with even greater usability. These reflections will provide a window into their classrooms and exemplary teaching practices. In doing so, BetterLesson will create a vehicle for the online lesson study through virtual observation. The Master Teacher Project will create a living, breathing, body of knowledge around what exceptional instruction looks like in this country.
