You have complete design flexibility

Working in collaboration with T³™ instructors and consultants, you can develop an ongoing Professional Development plan for middle grades and high school math and science teachers. Your T³™ BOOST™ program will accommodate the TI technology you use and any number of participants. Its duration and instructional components — including in-school hands-on workshops, classroom coaching and support and customized online Professional Development sessions (see below) — all will be configured to match your educators’ needs and your Professional Development budget.

Sample T³ BOOST program

This sample Professional Development plan outlines how a systemic Professional Development program can be built around math and science educators' specific needs. This sample focuses on implementation of Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, but you can design T³™ BOOST™ to address any state or national standards, including Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and STEM education.
