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!

This interactive session provides a framework for how to create intertextual units of study with canonical and contemporary works (poetry, drama, literature, music, movies, visual arts). Participants will learn strategies for how to demystify the canon that enable students to appropriate and argue their own politics in ways that are meaningful and relevant.
