From the inside out: Eagle Rock School Producing a New Generation of CES Teachers
Condon, Dan
Horace, v24 n1 Spr 2008
In this article, the author gives an overview of Eagle Rock School's Teaching Fellowship Program which he founded in collaboration with Public Allies, Inc. and under the auspices of Eagle Rock's Professional Development Center. Eagle Rock's Teaching Fellowship has two perspectives: (1) local; and (2) global. Locally, Fellows contribute skills, energy, and knowledge to the Eagle Rock School community. As residents, they are involved in student activities and campus life as well as classroom teaching and administration. Like everyone else at Eagle Rock, they serve as role models, take on leadership roles, and live the values expressed through Eagle Rock's commitments. The global perspective relates to the Eagle Rock School and Professional Development Center's mission of engaging educators in forging renewal and reform initiatives in schools across the country. Molding tomorrow's educational leaders begins with core training during which Fellows are oriented and begin the community-building process. Throughout the year, Fellows gather together as a cohort once a week for learning seminars facilitated by skilled professionals in the field. Fellows participate in a variety of professional development experiences, including weekly fellow learning seminars that explore the theory and practice of education.
