The Effects of Modifications to a Teacher-Leadership Project Based on Feedback from an Initial Cohort


"Lehman College's Mathematics Teacher Transformation Institutes (MTTI) aims to build leadership skills in Bronx middle and high school math teachers. MTTI supports two cohorts of teachers. We outline the ways in which MTTI was modified for the second cohort based on the experiences of working with the first cohort, and the effects of those modifications. We found that more careful recruitment of Cohort 2 has resulted in a more cohesive group, and a substantially lower dropout rate. Threading leadership seminars throughout other coursework has helped to provide an overview of the purpose of the program and encouraged the sharing of resources. The addition of written reflections makes participants more reflective practitioners and informs the running of the program."
