A clarion call for treating teaching like the craft it is, The Teaching Gap lays out a clear program for change that administrators, teachers, and parents can implement together."

Participants will receive up to 6 CTLE hours. In order to earn the full amount of credit hours, participants must:

- Respond to every discussion prompt.

- Reply respectfully to at least one other participant's response for each discussion prompt.

- Failure to meet these requirements will result in earning fewer CTLE hours.

Throughout the 4-week book study, participants will:

-Develop a PLN for continued practice.

The book study will begin on 7/5/19 and conclude on 8/5/19.
