Welcome teacher leaders from Kansas City Public Schools! This is the third summer Webster KC has provided enhanced math and science classroom instruction for 60 pre-k-12 teacher leaders from Kansas City Public Schools as part of a $1.35 million grant awarded to the district from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The grant also includes development of videos featuring the teachers using effective teaching strategies for math and science in conjunction with KCPT Channel 19. The grant will also help fund summer teacher workshops as well as after school science and math fairs for students.
As states begin to move away from No Child Left Behind, Webster KC instructor Julie Kubiak is teaching Common Core Standards in Math while Barbara Arnold is instructing the New Generation Science objectives. The teacher leaders will attend the two-week training sessions and return in the fall to their classrooms where they will share their new learning with other teachers in their respective buildings.
