EDC’s Success at the Core professional development videos are now available to teachers across the country, thanks to a new partnership with Teaching Channel.
Along with the 24 Success at the Core strategy videos, teachers can also access instructional plans, samples of student work, and teacher commentaries. Developer Wendy Sauer introduces these teacher development materials in four Teaching Channel blog posts:
- “Relevant and Real Content to Engage Students”
- “Support Structures that Help Teachers R-O-A-R”
- “Authentic Assessments”
- “Active and Exploratory Instruction”
Starting today, 20 Success at the Core leadership development videos and accompanying materials, designed for leadership teams and teachers, will also be available.
“Teaching Channel is an ideal host for our Success at the Core teacher and leadership development materials,” said EDC Vice President Barbara Miller. “We’re delighted that they have chosen to make our suite of resources available to their national audience of teachers, coaches, school and district leaders, and professional developers.”
Launched in 2010, Success at the Core was created by EDC and Vulcan Productions to help leadership teams and teachers prepare their students for success. The videos show teachers using evidence-based practices to enhance students’ mathematics, English language arts, and science learning, and the Success at the Core leadership development modules deepen teachers’ understanding of high-quality instruction and guide schoolwide improvement.
To date, Success at the Core has helped more than 17,000 educators in all 50 states and many countries improve instruction, winning multiple awards for excellence and innovation, including a Best Educational Software (BESSIE) for Best Professional Development Website, a CINE Golden Eagle Award (non-fiction category), and a Silver Telly Award (outstanding Web video).
“At Teaching Channel, we have great evidence that teachers appreciate that classroom doors are opening all across America so educators everywhere can see high-quality video of inspiring teaching and learning,” said Pat Wasley, Teaching Channel CEO. “We have long admired the Success at the Core videos and are thrilled to add this collection to our video library.”
