Better Together Retrospective Learning Brief & Research Report

The Better Together: California Teachers Initiative is sharing five years of insights in a June 2020 retrospective learning brief to inspire policymakers, professional learning providers and teachers to consider new approaches to professional learning. The brief is based on a research study from the Center for Research on Educational Access and Leadership (C-REAL) at CSU Fullerton that included a survey of 179 Better Together participants and teachers, as well as participant interviews to examine the short and long-term outcomes and best practices for teacher professional learning and leadership development.

California Teachers Summit Resource Guides

We know that teachers are the experts on what works in the classroom, so we’ve put together one-of-a-kind indexes of free, teacher-vetted resources that are already working in classrooms across the state. 

We hope you find these resources helpful, and hope you will share with your fellow teachers. By sharing our tools and expertise with one another, we can take our teaching to the next level and make an even bigger difference in the lives of California students.
