Teacher Summer Institute has ended
Welcome to Teacher Summer Institute 2017!  For the first time ever, Boston Public Schools and the Boston Teachers Union are co-hosting an academic conference for teachers.  TSI will focus on highlighting the best practices of some of our most passionate urban educators across BPS.  Teachers, central office staff, and valued members of our community will join together to help bring a shared vision for instruction to life across the district. Please note, this is open to all educators, and is not exclusively for new teachers. We hope to see you there!

Using Standards-Aligned Formative Assessments to Get the Most Out of Every Teaching Minute FULL

Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

We will explore a pathway to maximize instructional time by effectively planning from Common Core standards to target your students’ specific learning needs.  In the session, we will analyze how BPS formative assessments provide information on student performance on specific standards, we will utilize the UBD model to unpack key standards, and we will develop cognitively demanding tasks aligned to standards. As a result of this work, we will create a backwards plan for instruction that will provide progress-checks towards standard proficiency for all students. Participants will  be able to replicate this best practice with ILT, CPT/PLC, or in other collaborative spaces.
