Georgia Teaching Fellows
  •  I am part of the Georgia Southwest Cohort and will continue additional training throughout my first year of teaching. I am providing this information from the Georgia Teaching Fellows Wiki. It is a great description of the summer program.


  • Practice Teaching: Fellows spend some mornings with veteran teachers in their summer school classrooms observing and receiving hands-on opportunities working with and teaching students. During this time they receive feedback on their instruction to ensure Fellows’ continuous development and improvement.
  • Student Achievement Framework Sessions: Small, content-based groups work with a master teacher to understand and make connections between the Teaching for Student Achievement (TfSA) framework and their practice teaching experience. TfSA focuses on the two most crucial areas of learning for new teachers: Classroom Management and Culture (CMC) & Instructional Design and Delivery (IDD).
  • Evaluation: Fellow Advisors and Effectiveness Coaches are regularly evaluating Fellows in the 10 competencies of the IDD and CMC domains:

Instructional Design and Delivery
