Improving and expanding classroom skills is a lifelong process for teachers. The Upgrade Route can help provide resources for current information on topics such as national standards, gender equity, cooperative learning, and multicultural education. Visit "Professional Development" for helpful information about these topics and others.

Teachers can also use this section to get up-to-date information on technology skill development. Need to brush up on using Calculator-Based Laboratory 2 (CBL 2), capturing video clips, or writing web pages? Visit "Learning to Use Technology" which will provide step-by-step worksheets, graphics and QuickTime movies which address a variety of topics which will help improve your technology skills.

Once you learn how to use these technologies, how can you put them into effective practice in your classroom? Once again, the Upgrade Route is the key. Visit "Teaching with Technology" to learn how you can share your new skills in an effective manner with your students.
