The QCTeach Project provides opportunity for middle and high school teachers of core subjects (math, science, language arts, and social studies) to work together in online learning communities to develop quality content units aimed at raising and advancing students’ interests, knowledge, and skills. Through the website, teachers discuss what each is teaching, and they utilize on-line tools to measure and monitor students’ academic needs, responses, and gains. The Project is intended to support a systematic and strategic approach to differentiation.
Key people: Content specialists serve as facilitators for the on-line groups (names change, depending on group needs)
Collaborators/partners: COE & CAS and three ESDs (South Coast, Douglas, and Lane)
