Quick!! Become a "Highly Effective" Teacher Without Any Teaching Experience!

This is a new concept, thankfully resolving for all of us throughout America the true definition of a "highly effective teacher"........ Just in time to be used in the anti-tenure lawsuits that will be popping up all over the place!!!

The NYC Teaching Collaborative will take smart people (can we please find out your definition of "smart"?) and turn them into 'highly effective teachers" after they get hands-on training in a public school classroom for 8 months.  I betcha that there are glowing observation reports for every single graduate....gotta make the promos true, right?

I mean, it's like building tanks, then inventing a war so that you can justify the expense.

Good luck, newbies!

During this time, participants experience hands-on training in a public school classroom and targeted, ongoing coaching and feedback from skilled mentor teachers and program staff.

The Collaborative Experience:

Partner Teachers also receivetraining from program staff on key strategies for successfully working with students within a high-needs context. Meanwhile, they gradually assume increased instructional responsibilities throughout their eight month training period. Once they begin teaching in the fall of 2015, Partner Teachers continue to receive coaching from program staff in the initial months of their first year that is tailored to their specific strengths and needs.

This still sounds better than the NYC teaching fellows or TeAch for America where they have no experience or training and start teaching!!!

Doesn't sound bad but who can afford it? Why would you do this when you can go to an undergrad program and major in Ed. This is another year without pay between college and masters.
