Project Name:

Teachers Training Teachers: Delivering Innovative Multimedia Curriculum Resources

Partnered with North Carolina’s Department of Public Instruction (DPI) professional development consultants, Ms. Austin will join local North Carolina DPI content specialists and Kenan Fellows from across the state to help develop blended teacher training supporting effective delivery of the new Common Core and Essential Standards. Ms. Austin is tasked with supporting NCDPI’s intensive, blended professional development initiative focused on the transition from the current Standard Course of Study to the new Common Core and Essential Standards. This opportunity puts the Kenan Fellow on the cutting edge of North Carolina’s planned implementation of these new standards for all content areas during the 2012-2013 school year.
