Professional Development

Summer 2023

Project-based learning is a dynamic, evidenced-based approach to curriculum and instruction.  But here’s the thing: not all project-based learning is highly effective. 

Our Summer Institute helps teachers learn gold-standard project-based learning principles they need to create highly-effective project-based curriculum.  Over 3 days, teachers will design and develop one gold-standard PBL unit, including lesson instruction, to implement in schools.

SEL Advisory Facilitation

2023-2024 School Year

Advisory is the heart of a great school. When implemented well, it generates trust and engagement, offers unconditional belonging, and becomes the ideal place to develop social-emotional intelligence. SEL Advisory Facilitation is a certification program for educators serving middle or high school, enabling them to lead advisory groups which offer deep social and emotional learning.

Our immersive program includes in-person training, implementation coaching, and an invitation to be part of an ongoing community of practice.
