The New Teacher Project (TNTP) released the The Teacher Talent Toolbox today. According to the TNTP website, the toolbox is an open-source library of proven (since we are more cautious here at the OEP, we would probably say “promising” instead of “proven”) resources for building a thriving teacher team. The toolbox is tailored to the needs of schools serving high-poverty communities, and focuses on 6 critical areas:
- Recruitment and Hiring
- Retaining High Performers
- Performance Accountability
- Teacher Development
- Building a Professional Culture
