There's a Teach Plus some of you might be interested in attending at IIT on October 25th -- part of  interactive discussion series aimed at "connecting solutions-oriented teachers with policy leaders, recent research, and one another." More information about the event is below, in the attached flier and on the Teach Plus website:

This Chicago T+ Network event will enable teachers to learn from, give feedback to, and share ideas with state policy makers via discussion, live polling technology, and Q&A. Immediately following the discussion, you're invited with your fellow teachers to continue the conversations and networking over complimentary appetizers, beer, wine, and other beverages.

This is a unique opportunity for teachers to give input at a critical stage in the development of evaluation rubrics and systems. Voice your thoughts and shape evaluation policies for years to come. Be heard by state leaders.

The T+ Network is open to all CPS district, charter, and contract school classroom teachers. Please forward this invitation on to colleagues. Questions? Contact Amy Treadwell at
