The TAT Program is a training program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Its purpose is to train K-12 educators on the best practices for English learners (ELs). This grant program offers scholarships, three-credit courses, and teacher workshops and maintains a state-wide ELL curriculum library.
Southern Connecticut State University's (SCSU's) Training for All Teachers (TAT) Program embodies the belief that the education of English learners (ELs) is the responsibility of an entire school system. The TAT Program has been awarded a new federal grant, allowing us to continue our work, beginning in Fall, 2011 through Spring, 2016. We plan to build on what we have previously developed and to improve and expand on what we have learned from the past two grant projects. In partnership with the New Haven and Hamden, CT School systems the TAT Program program provides training to a substantial number of in-service, mainstream classroom teachers, on how to best educate the English learning students in their mainstream classrooms.
