Teacher Leaders Deliver Job-Embedded Professional Learning in Knox County

A master teacher from Knox County, Tennessee, discusses how the school schedule has been restructured to provide time during the regular school day for teachers to meet, learn, plan, mentor and share with other teachers. These "cluster meetings" for weekly professional learning allow for common time for teachers to learn new strategies from master and mentor teachers. They also offer an opportunity to collaborate with their peers as they analyze student work and address challenges and questions.
