Our suite of six online courses recognizes that educators need access to support and connection during this time of isolation and uncertainty. Each course is designed to benefit you now — as you teach remotely, and later — when you're able to return to your classroom. Through a combination of direct instruction, focused content, community and collaboration, and ready-to-use resources, this PD package will support you in implementing dynamic instructional strategies, designing targeted learning experiences, and engaging students.
July 5 - August 1 ONLINE INSTITUTE Our unique summer institute is an opportunity for passionate and curious high school students and teachers to collaborate virtually as “players” and experience the magic behind the Literacy Unbound initiative. Using a blend of synchronous and asynchronous engagements, players will interact with and learn from expert Literacy Unbound facilitators and professional teaching artists, and work together toward creating an original film centered around this year's selected text, Inerpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri.
July 8 - 29• $50 DIGITAL CONFERENCE Now more than ever, teachers are isolated, with few opportunities to share their experiences with colleagues. Our digital conference allows educators to engage with colleagues and reflect on their school year, while turning their sights toward next year in a meaningful and productive setting. This year's conference will focus on critical reflection and community connection through the lens of teaching and learning during the COVID-19 crisis. Participants will have the opportunity to move through modules centered around critical reflection, peer-to-peer discourse, and inspiration for the upcoming school year.
July 20 — Aug 28• $125 ONLINE ESSA is complex, and each new measurement is a peek into how NYS is defining student achievement and teacher performance. What do these changes mean for your school? This course will break down the complexities of NYS accountability standards and help you analyze school data, create strategic plans for your school, and reach your target goals. Each module will focus on an indicator from ESSA that is critical to understanding New York State's expectations for schools.
