Last week, the Extra Credit announced that thirty-two states and the District of Columbia give or allow local districts to give teachers credit for participating in the Teacher-to-Teacher e-Learning digital workshops. An additional seven states have joined this group, bringing the total number to forty.
The additional states are:
- South Dakota
The list of other states is in the May 19, 2005 edition of the Extra Credit, available online.
In order to assist teachers in finding out how they can receive credit from their state, the Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative has added an interactive United States map to its professional development Web site. Teachers can click on their states to find out more. Information on the additional states will be added shortly.
The e-Learning professional development website is part of the U.S. Department of Educations Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative, which also supports teachers through workshops, email updates, and the American Stars in Teaching recognition project. For more information, visit the Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative website at: www.ed.gov/teacherinitiative.
