Are you interested in a unique initiative for CTE teachers who are interested in enhancing integration of CCSS in literacy with their CTE area while also increasing their evidence for the edTPA and APPR? Register for the CTE Teacher Leadership for the Common Core State Standards is a four-course certificate program offered by Le Moyne College.
For the initial cohort we have funding to cover the cost of the first course in this four-course initiative. The additional three courses are offered at a reduced tuition of $1,500 for a total of $4,500 for the remaining three courses. Nominated participants agree to complete the entire four-course initiative, which will be offered via a combination of delivery formats including face-to-face, executive weekend, distance learning and online. Additional information about this initiative is included in the attached brochure. All nominations are due by May 15, 2013 with decisions being made by June 1, 2013.
Would you please complete the form attached to nominate a teacher who is interested in engaging in the full four-course initiative. Participants may be involved who wish to apply these courses toward the following :
(1) BS degree or as preparation for the edTPA, and/or for professional development to strengthen APPR evidence
(2) MS degree, and/or for professional development to strengthen APPR evidence
(3) MS or CAS in School Building Leadership and/or to strengthen APPR evidence
The initial course will take place on June 24, 25 and 26 on the Le Moyne College Campus in Syracuse, NY. The tuition for the first course ($1,500) and financial assistance for on-campus housing ($75) during the first 3-days of a 5-day summer course will be included in a grant from The Technical Assistance Center of NY. The final two days of the course will be offered in an online or weekend model. This will be determined by the students and professors during their initial class days. Students will be responsible for travel expenses, meals, any off-campus housing they might select instead of dormitory housing, and course materials.
This is an exciting new opportunity to design coursework that blends theory into practice and meets the needs of teachers in today’s CTE settings. Thank you for your nomination. If you would like to be considered for an adjunct professor position for courses that will be offered within this certificate, please email a brief description of your interest and your resume to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
