Our children deserve quality education and one way to improve the system is by encouraging our teachers to enhance their teaching skills. GFT offers ER&D courses intended to develop the effectiveness of our teachers with courses that have been researched and proven to work. The current course schedule includes classes such as Foundations of Effective Teaching, Reading Comprehension Instruction, Managing Anti-Social Behavior, and Instructional Strategies that Work. “These courses are different then most college level classes. These courses have been developed and designed by the researchers themselves along with teachers.”- Dana Figirliyong, Professional Development Director. Check out the current ER&D Schedule
