Two Powerful Professional Learning Experiences from the BTU
We are pleased to open applications now for our two empowering year-long professional learning experiences for the 2018-19 school year. Whether your focus is on policy or practice, these fellowships provide opportunities for meaningful learning about what matters most to you and your students.

Focused on Policy?: AFT-BTU Teacher Leader Program
How can I advocate for my students and my profession? What is education policy and how does it work? How does policy affect me, my students and my school? Learn about these topics and more in the AFT/BTU Teacher Leader Program. Teacher Leader Fellows:

  • Engage with state and local policy makers.
  • Learn how to advocate for your students and your profession
  • Join a national network of teachers advocating for the policies we need
  • Conduct action research in their classrooms and schools to explore the real impact of education policy
  • Present their findings and policy recommendations to policymakers and colleagues

This program meets on eight Saturdays during the school year (dates coming soon). $1,500 stipend for program completion. Apply today.

Focused on Practice? The BTU Inquiry Project: Renew, Reinvigorate, Research
In this teacher-led course you can earn graduate credit by conducting action research into a question of practice important to you and your students. Open to ALL BTU members. Read more information and apply. Course begins in early October.

NEW — Fall 2018 CURATE Curriculum Fellowship
The Rennie Center and Teach Plus are working with DESE to coordinate a set of three panel conversations this fall focused on curricular alignment and implementation. The panels will focus on early ELA/literacy, elementary ELA/literacy, and middle school math. Applications are live now and will be open through July 30. Panelists will receive a $1,000 stipend and 30 PDPs for participating in the project, and it’s a great opportunity for skill-building on reviewing curricular materials.
