The goals of the Teacher Training Program are to ensure sustainable professional development for Cabarete public school teachers and to create an assessment system that captures students’ academic growth, which can be used to inform and improve public school instruction. In the past, DREAM has used model classrooms in Cabarete’s public schools and during summer camp programs to demonstrate new instructional strategies to local teachers. Surveys and observations have shown traction with these programs, so DREAM has continued the momentum from the Summer Camp Programs by creating a Professional Learning Community and providing professional development to clusters of teachers in the Puerto Cabarete, CADIN, La Ciénaga and Colonia Nueva schools. Schools need structured time for teachers to work together in planning instruction, observing each other’s classrooms and sharing feedback.
