Transforming Teacher Work: For a Better Educated Tomorrow
Advance Illinois
This paper tells the story of what must be done to make teaching in Illinois look more like the ever-evolving careers available in today's most innovative industries. This report was developed in collaboration with Advance Illinois' Educator Advisory Council (EAC)--a group of award-winning teachers who have been recognized for moving Illinois toward such a future. These teachers--and hundreds like them--tell the story of how students benefit when teachers are empowered as leaders, innovators, and avid learners. Herein, models for transforming teacher work and steps and resources required for success are described through the use of four guideposts: (1) Effective Collaboration; (2) Shared Leadership & Responsibility; (3) Professional Learning & Continuous Growth; and (4) Elevated & Evolving Careers.
