The Peter Clark Center for Teaching & Learning is committed to faculty development that aligns with current research on mind, brain, and education and is immediately applicable in the classroom. Select Breck faculty leaders, our Faculty Fellows, will be trained in Teaching for All Kinds of Minds and Neuroteach: Brain Science and the Future of Education. The Breck Faculty Fellows, in turn, will support the training of our entire faculty during the 2017-2018 school year. We are partnering with St. Andrew's Episcopal School and their Center for Transformative Teaching & Learning to provide faculty training and collaboratively engage in ongoing exploration into Mind, Brain, and Education Science.
The CTTL, led by Glenn Whitman, co-author of the book Neuroteach, gathers the latest in Mind, Brain, and Education Science and works to put that research into the hands of teachers. By doing so, teachers can better construct their classes to the benefit of every student. This means more students can become high achievers and students with multiple AP classes can get their work done more efficiently. Every student and teacher at St. Andrew's benefits from the CTTL on a daily basis. St. Andrew’s teachers use research informed whole-class and personalized strategies to help each student become more confident, efficient, and independent learners throughout his or her learning journey.
