NEA Master Teacher application deadline is Monday


NEA has launched the NEA Master Teacher Project to recruit the best teachers in the country to document and share what makes them effective. The project will select 95 of the highest performing K-12 Math and ELA common core teachers across the country, and award them $15,000 to share all of their lessons and practices with their fellow educators. 

The application deadline is July 15. Click here for more information and to apply.

Through the project, NEA Master Teachers will provide the “what” (180-day common core aligned courses) and the “how” (instructional strategies, classroom management practices, classroom systems) of good teaching.

The lessons and practices will be distributed to all of NEA’s members via the BetterLesson platform. Already, BetterLesson hosts more than a million teacher-created resources and has more than 275,000 registered members.

“The best ideas for the classroom come from classroom teachers,” NEA program director Bill Raabe said. “We want to build a free, open body of knowledge around effective curriculum and instruction – for teachers, by teachers.”
