Elevate is a professional learning tool that helps motivated teachers improve their practice and cultivate academic engagement, success, and equity. To facilitate these improvements, Elevate:
Makes it easy for teachers to use valid surveys to learn how students experience their teaching.
Gives teachers practical, research-based recommendations for improvement.
Enables teachers to quickly test the impact of the new practices they try, so they can determine for themselves what works for their teaching style and their students.
Elevate was developed through a partnership between PERTS, the University of Chicago Consortium, the National Equity Project, and CASEL as part of the Building Equitable Learning Environments (BELE) Network. It's free to small groups of teachers because of generous sponsorship from the Raikes Foundation, Overdeck Family Foundation, and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Elevate is developed in partnership with leading SEL researchers, including:
- Carol Dweck, Professor, Stanford University
- Camille Farrington, Managing Director, UChicago Consortium on School Research
- Jason Okonofua, Assistant Professor, UC Berkeley
Greg Walton, Associate Professor, Stanford University
