The TCU Elementary Education Institute: Making the Invisible Visible

The TCU Elementary Education Institute is a two day workshop designed for teachers of grades K-5.  It stands apart from other institutes in its approach to professional growth.  The TCU model allows teachers to design their own professional development rather than spending time with only one instructor. Teachers will choose from sessions by different instructors starting on the second day.

Special sessions are incorporated into our professional development in an effort to broaden the participants’ experiences.  For example, Elementary Education 101 will help teachers new to the profession devise strategies that challenge students as thinkers, readers, and writers.

In an effort to encourage cross-curricular teaching and address the needs of all students, instructors will offer sessions that incorporate strategies for ESL, SPED, and Gifted/Talented in reading, writing, math, and science.

Time to debrief will allow opportunities for teachers to pause, reflect, and share ideas about what they have learned. Work sessions provide time for teachers to design TEKS-aligned products that they can use in their classrooms.

The 2018 TCU Elementary Education Institute is committed to giving teachers time to be the student; to listen, see, and learn and then reflect, discuss, and produce.
