Center for Inspired Teaching Overview
Programs: Inspired Teaching is rooted in the belief that every student possesses the ability to think critically, learn and understand information, and solve complex problems. Students should spend their time in school engaged primarily in these activities. Since 1996, the thousands of educators who have experienced Inspired Teaching's programs have in turn inspired tens of thousands of students in Washington, DC to learn how to think, not just what to think. Through professional development courses, in-classroom mentoring, and whole school partnerships, our research-based programs challenge teachers to revisit their assumptions, personal philosophies, and beliefs about teaching and how children learn. Teachers describe Inspired Teaching's programs as "life-changing" and value the support of a community of like-minded educators dedicated to improving their instructional practice. The result is improved instructional abilities that allow teachers to teach subject matter in academically rigorous, yet innovative and engaging ways. Teachers learn how to build a positive and productive relationship with each student, in order to motivate all students to reach their full potential.
