Charlotte Teachers Institute recently recognized more than 80 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers as CTI Fellows for successfully completing CTI seminars and designing engaging new curricula for their students. CTI also announced publication of these CTI Fellows’ curriculum units on the CTI website where they are available for use by teachers worldwide.
CTI seminars are led by Davidson College and UNC Charlotte professors in the arts and sciences who challenge teachers to deepen their content knowledge and think in interdisciplinary ways. CTI Fellows in turn share their creative learning with their students and other teachers,
The 2015 CTI Fellows represent grade levels preK-12, and a wide range of subjects from language arts, world history, foreign languages and art, to math, sciences, technology, and more.
“Together, these teachers spent nearly 3,000 hours over seven months attending CTI seminars at Davidson College and UNC Charlotte,” said CTI Executive Director Scott Gartlan. “In addition, they read and researched extensively, and wrote original curriculum units designed for their own students. They plan to share their new curricula with nearly 500 other CMS teachers, and almost 7,500 CMS students will learn from the units our Fellows created this year.”
Each CTI Fellow received three continuing education units and a stipend for seminar completion. CTI celebrated these teachers’ achievements at its Fellows’ Finale Celebration at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in December.
CTI presents eight, concurrent seminars each year, running April to December. CTI Fellows have created over 500 curriculum units created by CTI Fellows since 2009.
