The Innovation in Teaching Competition: Beyond the Textbook began as part of Georgia’s Race to the Top plan to create and support highly-effective teachers. The competition promotes excellence in the classroom through two main goals: (a) recognizing and rewarding educators from across our state who are using innovative strategies to advance student achievement, and (b) making videos of the winning teachers, along with their unit plans and supplementary materials, available to all Georgia educators. Since 2013, the Innovation in Teaching Competition has recognized 36 educators from across Georgia.
Below you will find the resources submitted by the 33 competition winners. Each page includes a unit plan, supplementary materials, and video. The below units are categorized based on grade level, but you may also filter your search by Subject and Instructional Strategy from the right-hand menu.
In this episode of Let’s Learn GA!, Georgia Teacher Kay Brumbelow discusses how to establish and teach classroom expectations.
