By Cotsen Staff, Cotsen Foundation for the ART of TEACHING —
Last year, the Cotsen Foundation for the ART of TEACHING had the distinct pleasure of working with 133 fellows, 24 mentors, and 30 schools, as well as 256 alumni who participated in foundation-sponsored activities. Together, these teachers affected more than 11,000 students over the course of the 2010–2011 academic year.
While these figures measure some aspects of our accomplishments, the work we do at the Cotsen Foundation for the ART of TEACHING is much more than a tally of our numbers, just as artful teaching is much more than a sum of its parts.
With this in mind, we are pleased to bring you Inside the ART of TEACHING. This new publication will aim to not only capture the sum of our latest events and activities, but more importantly, the spirit of our program, at the heart of which is a community of people who have come together with the goal of developing gifted teachers and artful teaching.
