Efficacy of Long-term Professional Development: RWCT Retrospective (Latvia)

Victoria Gillis, University of Wyoming

Research Question

What was the professional impact of participation in Reading and Writing for Critical Thinking (RWCT) for the original teachers who became RWCT certified Trainers? Do classroom teachers who have been educated and or trained by RWCT Trainers implement the principles of RWCT in their everyday teaching? How might the impacts on participants in Latvia and results of RWCT training, as viewed in classrooms, be applied to similar professional development programs in Wyoming?
