With a vision to “grow their own” teaching staff, Summit developed a residency based secondary teacher preparation program now approved by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. The program prepared teachers to implement Summit’s personalized learning approach in English, mathematics, science, history social science and world language classrooms. SCALE staff contributed to the initial design of the program, developed syllabi for courses and developed major curriculum and assessment resources for use in the initial pilot year of the program (2017-2018). This program rolled out nationally with Summit partner districts beginning 2018-19.
- developed “playlist” resources, tasks, clinical experiences and assessments as a major source for the program curriculum
- provided edTPA related professional development to key Summit staff who lead the credential program
- designed and delivered a program evaluation to inform revisions to curriculum, assessments and overall program implementation
