Program Overview

Currently, the ART of TEACHING participants are located only in California.

The ART of TEACHING combines a number of components to produce powerful professional growth and development. Mentors act as change agents coaching individual Cotsen fellows in classrooms weekly. Fellows observe great teachers to gain new vision and inspiration. They also set goals to grow in content knowledge and in pedagogy. The Cotsen fellows set goals in an area of strength, videotape themselves, reflect on what they see, attend conferences to learn even more, and participate monthly in an inquiry group with colleagues to study teaching more deeply.
