About the Grant

Grant Description:

Every day teachers are presenting exemplary math, science, and reading lessons, but they often go unshared because:

Teachers want to use video as a means of communicating, but are prevented from doing so because of:

The Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) introduces "Teacher Double Feature" which proposes a solution to both of these problems by inviting teachers to share two exemplary lessons, complete with collateral material and video clips, via the web. Up to fifteen (15) teachers whose applications have been selected will receive a digital video camera, tripod, wireless microphone, and software that they will be able to keep upon successful completion of their total project. They will also receive three full days of training to help them learn to plan and shoot their video, edit the footage, and present the lesson and collateral material for the web.
