Learning Through Teaching:About the Program
Learning Through Teaching (LTT) is an innovative, in-service program designed to help K-12 teachers meet their individual goals in teaching, reading, writing, and literature. It is unique, because it brings teacher education to the site of instruction—the teacher’s school and classroom. The format includes observation, feedback, individualized learning, and shared expertise. Each course will be coordinated by a faculty consultant from the New Hampshire Literacy Institutes who will work with teachers to develop individual programs.
A critical feature of the course is the individualized mentoring offered on-site by the faculty consultant and developed according to your school’s professional needs. Whether the program is for your teachers at a particular grade level, in a specific subject area, or across the curriculum, we will customize the training to benefit you the most. Training is offered at your site—during the academic year or as an intensive one- to two-week summer option.
Participants can earn 1-8 graduate credits per year.
Course Length and Cost
Learning through Teaching is designed to be offered for a wide range of hours during the academic year, in response to the needs of your school. Cost varies depending on the number of participants, length of project, and contact hours.
