The next talk in the TeachingWorks seminar series will be on Monday, December 12, 2011. It will feature Annie Lewis, vice president of program design and teacher preparation for Teach for America. Ms. Lewis’s talk will take place from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Tribute Room (room 1322) and will be streamed online at She will discuss how staff members at Teach for America identified the content of their summer training institute and professional development curricula.

Teach For America is the national corps of recent college graduates who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools. It has become one of the nation’s largest providers of teachers for low-income communities. After this final presentation for the fall semester, we will hear from some university-based programs in the winter, broadening the set and type of programs from which we are learning across the year.

I hope you will join us for this seminar on December 12. Light refreshments will be provided.
