Last Updated on February 13, 2013

TPS-Barat Train-the-Trainer Winter 2012 Cohort
Barat Education Foundation invites Chicago Public School (CPS) middle and high school teachers, grades 6-12, as well as network instructional leaders and teacher librarians (K-8, 6-8, or 9-12), to participate in the Spring 2013 cohort of the TPS-Barat Train-the-Trainer program (TPS-Barat TTT). This cohort will run from March through June, 2013.

Program Overview

The TPS-Barat TTT program focuses on two key areas. The program trains educators how to access and use freely available Library of Congress resources to scaffold both content-area and disciplinary literacy learning with primary sources as they guide students in the ascension of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) staircase of complexity. The program also trains educators in adult learning theory and methodology so that they can best advocate for the application of primary source learning focused on CCSS instructional shifts and support their colleagues in the ongoing implementation of rigorous and engaging instruction.

Program Structure

The TPS-Barat TTT program is comprised of six training blocks.

  • Block 1:  Orientation to the Library of Congress online (on your own)
  • Block 2:  TPS Content Competencies Workshop (2 days in class)
  • Block 3:  Activity Presentation Prep (on your own)
  • Block 4:  TPS Professional Development & Mentoring Competencies Workshop (3 days in class)
  • Block 5:  Training & Mentoring Development & Implementation (on your own)
  • Block 6:  Cohort Wrap-up Conference (1/2-day webinar)

For more details and information on applying, please contact us using a valid Chicago Public School email address. Please note: application deadline is Feb. 18, 2013.

Not a CPS teacher? TPS-Barat also provides no-cost workshops for teachers in northern Cook and Lake counties as well as the Rockford area.
