Description:

The goal of the Yale National Initiative is to "strengthen teaching in public schools", which it tries to do by encouraging the formation of new Teachers Institutes throughout the United States. Their website includes a link to the "League of Teachers Institutes", as well as their "League News". The newsletter of the Institute can be found under the link "On Common Ground", and it includes an archive of back issues that dates back to 1993. Some of the topics in the most recent issue are about planning a San Francisco Teachers Institute, and some of the 2008 national seminars and curriculum units. The "Curricular Resources" link on the website offers the curriculum units that each teacher that is a National Fellow in the national seminars is required to prepare. The teachers then use the curriculum in their school, and share it with other teachers in the school and district. The curricula for 2010 include such topics as "The Mathematics of Wallpaper", "Nanotechnology and Human Health", and "Evolutionary Medicine".
