What is the Model Classroom?
The Model classroom Project originated in the fall of 2013 as a professional learning partnership between The University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and District 49.
This initiative began with a cohort of teacher leaders at Sand Creek High School examining and developing exemplars of instructional practices which emphasized inquiry- across disciplines. The project has now evolved and expanded to show case examples of excellent instructional practices through out our District 49. The Model classroom Project provides teachers in all grade levels and content areas the opportunity to observe, learn and reflect through the use of video and coaching conversations. District 49 embraces a culture of sharing and collegiality so teachers can continually support each other in their professional growth.
