Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) kicked off its 2016 Seminars at Discovery Place on April 21, 2016 with the Fellows Orientation. 104 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers representing kindergarten through 12th grade were selected as CTI Fellows and will participate in eight seminars led by Davidson College and UNC Charlotte professors. Fellows met their Seminar Leaders (professors) during the orientation event, had a chance to dive into the seminar content and networked with community partners from Charlotte Symphony, Discovery Place Education Studio, NASCAR Hall of Fame, and UNC Charlotte’s Writing Program. Seminars take a break over the summer and pick up in September with weekly meetings through November. Each Fellow writes a 20-page curriculum unit designed to motivate and challenge their students to new academic heights. Read more.
