River City Professional Development


Throughout River City Teacher Professional Development (RCTPD), participating teachers: (a) work through the curriculum as learners and instructors, (b) connect their content and instructional expertise with the River City interface and materials, (c) measure their own understanding by reflecting on activities, and (d) build confidence in themselves and the curriculum. RCTPD focuses not only on the skills needed to implement River City, but also on skills of scientific inquiry and inquiry-based pedagogies that teachers can use after River City is completed.
