This course will prepare teachers to co-teach Operation Spark’s level 1 curriculum with a full-time Operation Spark instructor. Educators who co-teach with Operation Spark for two or more semesters can go on to license and independently teach the Operation Spark level 1 curriculum.
“Trained teachers are our boots on the ground in the classroom, they work with our instructors on a daily basis to collaboratively deliver dynamic and effective learning experiences in their classrooms,” said Operation Spark Director of High School Programs, Mayukh Raychaudhuri. “This has been a successful model for us over the past two years, both in terms of student outcomes and teacher development.”
Registration will take place through June 18, 2021, or when the seat limit of 30 participants is reached. To register: bit.ly/opsparkteachertraining2021
Operation Spark is also offering an 8-week virtual Summer Teacher Training Intensive for Louisiana middle and high school teachers to learn how to code, with scholarships available.
