Nuts & Bolts Webinar: Cultural reciprocity: Leaning Forward, Not Bending Over Backwards

Strategies for Sustaining a Teacher Residency
Sustaining a teacher residency requires planning for how to compensate residents long-term. This tool provides strategies and discussion questions that Educator Preparation Programs (EPPs) and school district partners can consider to sustain their residency over time given their individual context.
BranchED seeks to support individual educator preparation programs (EPPs) and the field at large in reimagining and redefining “quality” preparation programs such that attention to issues of diversity and equity are explicit, embedded, and inextricably linked to high-quality performance.
The Resource Portal was created to support our community by providing resources such as instructional materials, online modules, podcasts, practice-based learning opportunities, research briefs, teaching video library, tool/toolkit, and webinars.
