Professional Development

GEAR UP Mississippi aims to support teacher professional development in our partner school districts. This development hopefully leads to higher achievement of students with more students choosing to pursue higher education. These professional development activities will best fit the needs of the districts and may include:

  • Best practices for lesson development

  • Interdisciplinary planning

  • Team building

  • Activities to link each course to career opportunities

  • Advanced placement/honors courses support

  • Technology infusion in courses

  • Alternatives for juniors and seniors

  • Accessing Higher Education
