The Oakland Writing Project and Learning Forward of Michigan have partnered together in applying for a (grant) to host an ECET2 Detroit in 2016.
ECET2 stands for Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers. It is an event that is designed to elevate teacher voice and tap into teacher leaders. Building the agency of teacher leaders and providing them with the confidence to step into a leadership role, whether official or unofficial, is the driving mission of ECET2.
The ECET2 Detroit planning team consists of teachers from many levels of the education world: nonprofit, ISD, university, as well as local school districts. The initial launch team consists of several Oakland Writing Project teacher consultants along with Learning Forward Michigan members.
