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!

The participants will learn about the development of the Carter School CDT Matrix for students with severe special needs. I will go over each level of the Matrix and provide examples for better clarity. Participants will learn the difference between simple discriminations and conditional discriminations and how to apply these concepts in our teaching. We will end the session with a group share out of findings and discuss ways to apply the CDT Matrix in our instruction.
