(July 14, 2011)--The University of Texas at San Antonio this week is hosting local teachers in math, science, bilingual education and special education at a weeklong professional development series offered by the Academy for Teacher Excellence (ATE) in the College of Education and Human Development.

The series, themed "Tool: Belt, Box and Bar," will provide teachers with tools to enhance their classroom instruction. Presenters will offer learning, teaching, management, technology and other tools.

Among other topics, workshops will include:

  • Technology in the Classroom
  • Writing Goals and Objectives
  • Coercion Versus Influence
  • Behavior Management
  • Smartboard training
  • A "What I Wish I'd Known" panel

ATE was established as a hub for school districts, community colleges and UTSA to collaboratively research, design, implement and evaluate educational programs that address emerging, statewide and local educational issues associated with a growing diverse student population.

A major focus is the implementation of a Title V Hispanic-serving-institutions grant to leverage resources in the community to better prepare teachers in classrooms with diverse student populations.
