enacting our Mission
Teacher Lab’s mission is to meet novice teachers where they are by identifying and deconstructing what expert teachers do. Why novice teachers specifically? Novice teachers frequently lack high-quality teaching materials, and when they do have it, often they haven't yet grown the knowledge and skills for how to use them effectively.
Teacher Lab addresses this gap by:
working alongside expert teachers to identify successful teacher “moves”—the what, why, and how of teaching;
building explicit teaching and learning modules and materials for novice teachers; and
coaching novice teachers one-on-one as they adapt and teach these units and lessons in their own classrooms.
We do this at NO COST to teachers because we firmly believe that all teachers should have access to the quality teaching and learning tools they need to develop their expertise and maximize their students' learning potential.
