What are some programs that help mid-career teachers to improve the way they teach, especially teaching lower-performing students?

North Carolina has a nice program called NCCAT
, but it's more of a soul-refreshing retreat program. I hear a lot about places like Washington DC
(where Michelle Rhee
is at work) or Rhode Island
firing teachers left and right. Teach for America
is aimed at non-traditional teachers.
What are some tools or strategies people have for engaging high school students, especially when they are basically resisting engagement? And a bit selfishly, strategies that leave ES Dad some time to spend with his own children.
