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!

In this session you will learn about the work the Perry K-8 School has been doing around selecting individual “focus” students and developing lessons based on student strengths. We chose our focus students based on the achievement gaps at our school. We focused on incorporating culturally and linguistically sustaining practices and social emotional learning to support our students of color, our English Learners, and our students with disabilities. From this session you will walk away with strategies to implement with your students in the fall.
