How to become Highly-Qualified and Highly-Effective by Subject

100% of teachers have new assignments at some point in their career.  Certainly they do when they first start as a novice teacher, then again, occasionally as an experienced teacher.  The Expert Systems for Teachers™ is a practical, economical solution in situations where teachers need to be not only 1) technically highly-qualified by passing a general subject-area test, but also 2) prepared with subject-specific instructional and mentoring support to be a highly-effective teacher for a specific course within the subject area. If you are just starting to teach a course for the first time or have taught it for a year or two, these instructional supports will be helpful in getting any teacher “up to speed.”

What’s best for me? Below is a chart to help determine the best “just-in-time” solution, among the elements of the 3-part program, for those teachers with new subject assignments, whether novice, experienced, technically qualified or not:

3-Part Program: Part 1 (instructional support) and Part 2 (e-Mentoring support) of the program may be ordered here at Teaching Point through the Catalog pages and shopping cart (or through school P.O.). Part 3, the Online Courses (includes parts 1 and 2) may be enrolled through participating universities in subject-specific online courses for 3 CEU’s or equivalent in-service points/hours toward certification or recertification (license renewal).
