Greater Calling was the first part of a four-part series on professional
development for teachers. Three other programs followed No Greater
Calling, although they were never broadcast because of their specific
target audience. The entire professional development series, Models
of Teaching, had a guide as a companion piece to the series, each
program having its own segment of the guide.
links to the side will take you to guides for each of the four Models
of Teaching programs. While each one is directed toward a specific
audience, the guides and their accompanying videos contain thought-provoking
material and questions important for teachers, principals and administrators
seeking to improve their performance and profession. Each guide
contains a general description of the objectives of the program,
the target audience, program segments, a self-tutorial, and workshop
the program guides are available in Adobe Acrobat, the descriptions
at the beginning of the guide are on the web page. However, since
the questions for the self-tutorial and the workshop can be found
only in the Acrobat file, you will need to download the Acrobat
version of the guide before you watch the videos.
Success Stories section is a place where you can network
as a teacher--sharing techniques or methods that you have found
particularly effective. We hope that this section proves helpful
for teachers seeking professional development training.
