What is Summer Institute?

Summer Institute uses a full immersion model of professional learning. Teachers get the opportunity to become students in a class, so they can experience and experiment with a number of explicit teaching strategies from a student’s perspective. Participants are assigned to a single strand over the course of three days. On days 2 and 3, sessions will be scheduled to meet with members from your school to reflect and share the learning from each strand and plan for the following year’s implementation.
