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!

Participants in this session will learn how plan cognitively demanding tasks that are accessible to all learners including ELLs and students with special needs. We will discuss how to plan lessons using Hess's Cognitive Rigor Matrix. We will also work on providing appropriate scaffolds that foster a productive struggle but also support learners so that they can be successful.
