Partnership With St Andrews
Dallas Christian School has committed to partnering with the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning as a participant in the Science of Teaching and School Leadership Academy, which is being co-designed with individual faculty from Research Schools International (led by faculty at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education) and the Science of Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University. The Academy invites a select number of public, public-charter, and independent schools to explore how Mind, Brain, Education science can enhance teacher quality and student achievement. Dallas Christian School has committed to the Academy for a three year partnership in which four representatives will be joining 150 educators from 5 countries and 20 states in this deep dive into Mind, Brain, Education science. As part of the Academy partnership, 100% of Dallas Christian School teachers will receive training on the Mind, Brain, Education knowledge, skills, and mindsets to implement in the classroom. The Academy has attracted an international faculty, who have authored books such as Make it Stick, The Teaching Brain, Urban Myths About Learning and Education and Neuroteach.
