Graduate credit available for teachers who complete Teachscape training
Through Teachscape, all South Dakota public school districts have access to in-depth, high quality training on the state’s teaching standards (Danielson Framework) and how the standards are used for teacher evaluation. Teachers now have an opportunity to earn graduate credit through the University of South Dakota for this work. Two options are available. (See chart below.)
With a state-paid license, South Dakota teachers access Teachscape Focus for Teachers and receive comprehensive training on the South Dakota Framework for Teaching. Approximately 30 hours of coursework and reflection are available to teachers through Teachscape Focus for Teachers.
For a teacher to get a state-paid license, the district’s Teachscape contact must email the Teachscape Implementation support team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the license providing access expires June 30, 2015.
The course registration deadline is May 1. Coursework must be submitted by May 30.
