Building on the success of last year's teacher workshops, the U.S. Department of Education will again host a series of workshops for teachers and principals in the summer of 2005. Some of the nation's best teachers and researchers will share their strategies for raising student achievement and informing teachers of the latest, successful research-based practices. The upcoming Teacher-to-Teacher Summer Workshops will be geared toward K-12 teachers and principals, and the subjects covered will be evenly distributed among elementary and secondary school instruction. Breakout sessions will cover the content areas of literacy, reading, mathematics, science, history, and the arts. Additional sessions will be held on special education, English language learners, school leadership, the No Child Left Behind Act, using data effectively, federal grant writing, and teaching strategies that enable students to improve academically.The 2005 Teacher-to-Teacher Summer Workshops are scheduled in the following six cities:
