P21: Professional Development Laboratory
P21, CREC's professional development website, supports teachers, administrators, curriculum specialists and magnet school leaders by providing centralized, coordinated, and easily accessible resources to help the teachers and support staff members improve skills and expand areas of expertise.
P21 offers a collective vision for teaching and learning by showcasing highly effective instructional strategies, sharing common learning tools, and highlighting best practices in a variety of formats and mechanisms. Teachers are able to view clips of sample lessons, download resources, find contact information for support staff, and follow links to useful websites. Utilizing our site is one strategy in building CREC's professional community throughout the district's nineteen magnet schools, offering opportunities to observe model lessons and communicate with teachers offering those lessons.
