Teachers Motivating Teachers at FACTS: Improving Practice through Teamwork
Every August Philadelphia teachers head back to their classrooms, rested and ready to tackle the challenges of the coming year. They decorate their classrooms, analyze their student lists, and plan for a year full of learning, opportunities and fun for students. In the back of each teacher’s mind, however, is also the toolbox of strategies that will be needed to overcome the obstacles that students may arrive with on their first day of school. At Folk Arts-Cultural Treasures Charter School (FACTS), the teachers work together to refine this toolbox, especially as it relates to their students’ literacy skills.
