Studies have shown that what a teacher knows, believes, and can do is what matters most when it comes to student achievement. Teachers21 services expand educators' content knowledge and hone their abilities to deliver the content to meet the needs of all learners.
About our Services to Deepen Content Knowledge and Application
With new Common Core standards that impact all subject areas, along with upcoming changes in science and other frameworks, districts need to assess how to adjust and refine their curricula in the most efficient and effective way. Teachers21 helps orchestrate this process and will impart experience learned from other districts that are undertaking similar self-assessments.
Increase content knowledge
Through hands-on learning experiences that engage educators with strategies and tools to deepen content knowledge, Teachers21 consultants expand educators' capacity to be effective in their roles and build their confidence.
Only with practice and feedback can educators truly improve their instruction. Teachers21 works with schools and districts to coach and to build instructional leadership capacity so schools can sustain gains in achievement.
Our literacy approach supports most of the programmatic approaches and ensures that the entire educational community is able to support students in their learning.
Whether the need is to deepen individual skills, to collaborate to develop projects that cross subject areas, or to develop strategies to incorporate STEM learning and problem solving throughout the curriculum, Teachers21 has the expertise to support your needs.
Expertise in other areas
We work extensively to help educators with curriculum, pedagogy and supervision in areas such as Health, Athletics, Special Education, Guidance, Social Studies and many more.
If you believe, as we do, that content knowledge, particularly in math and literacy, is the shared responsibility of all educators, contact us to discuss how to build these skills and support student achievement across the district.

The LIFT2 Program
The LIFT2 program, now in its 12th year, places committed teachers into paid summer externships in companies in STEM fields so they can experience first-hand what careers might look like for their students. By being exposed to the many ways in which the content they are teaching might be used outside the classroom, teachers' experiences in the LIFT2 program invariably allow them to improve and inspire the learning of their students and lead a greater number of students to contemplate STEM careers.
