Take your teaching and teacher education practice to the next level this summer.

Join us July 20 - August 5, 2020 at the TeachingWorks Summer Institute, an intensive, multi-program professional learning opportunity for teachers and teacher educators to build vision and skill for teaching and teacher education practice that advances justice.

How it Works

The institute is composed of three individual programs:  K-12 laboratory classes in elementary mathematics and secondary ELA, teacher education methods laboratory classes in middle school mathematics and secondary ELA, and the annual practice-based teacher education workshop. Each program will provide participants with the opportunity to delve into the complexities of teaching and teacher education practice that incorporates high-leverage practices and practice-based teacher education pedagogies. Participants will gain practical strategies, tangible resources, and hands-on experience in using instruction to disrupt patterns of injustice and exclusion in classrooms. Participants may choose to participate in one, two, or all three of these programs.

Participants will engage with artifacts of teaching and teacher education practice such as videos and transcripts, and then try out the approaches they observe in workshops facilitated by TeachingWorks. The practice-based teacher education workshop is a perfect opportunity for participants who attend the teacher education methods laboratory classes to apply their learning.
