looking for sensible ways to meet the Citywide Instructional Expectations
ready to develop a Writing Center in your school
searching for a program that will fully engage students in writing and may even result in students identifying themselves as writers
or dreaming of a school that "goes global" into the 21st century and prepares your students for professions that do not yet exist
CPET will effectively tailor a program to meet your school's needs.
In addition to our current projects, we've developed specialized services that target school-wide needs for the upcoming 2013-14 school year:
Authentic implementation of the Danielson framework: Leveraging the Danielson framework as an opportunity to deepen instructional and assessment practices
Managing Local Measures of student growth for teacher evaluation: 20% of teacher effectiveness is dependent on the pending agreement between the DOE and the unions. When this measure comes into effect, there will be a learning curve for everyone involved. CPET has been a key consultant on the DOE Local Measures Pilot, and we know exactly what it takes to develop practices to demonstrate teacher effectiveness and increase student achievement.
Aligning curriculum, unit pans and performance assessments to Common Core Standards: Deepening pedagogy through thoughtful planning, focusing on the city's priority standards, instructional shifts and the changing landscape of state exams.
Leveraging teacher teams as change agents: Support for the development and effectiveness of teacher teams and teacher leaders.
Instruction & assessment coaching: Support for new teachers, content areas and school leaders with PD for instructional practices, tools and strategies, and assessment design.
