Presentations and Publications on the CTELL Project
During years 1 and 2 we are collecting and editing over 5,000 hours of video in K-3 classrooms around the country. We are developing these into a series of video cases which will appear on the Internet and/or CD-ROM. Year two will find us in our own university classrooms conducting formative experiments on the effective use of our video cases of best practice instruction. Below you will discover publications and conference presentations about our work.
