Teacher-based Reform (T-BAR) Pilot Project provided access to teacher selected professional learning that was both flexible in its design, embraced by site administrators, and embedded trusted intermediaries (institutions of higher education, county offices of education, California Subject Matter Projects, and other external partners) in the localized implementation model. Early findings showed that T-BAR project sites were building the instructional capacity of their participating teachers (i.e., increased confidence of teachers, improvements in curricula, and improved leadership skills). The T-BAR sites were augmented, referred to as TBAR 2, to pay specific attention paid towards the conditions and resources that are needed to improve teaching and instructional leadership.
