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!

Session Description

This workshop will introduce participants to a year-long inquiry project that sought to identify the presence of inspiration in a Kindergarten 2 classroom and its contribution to building a learning community where collaboration, student talk, and engaging project-based activity all contributed to creative and cognitively demanding learning in the classroom.

This presentation is appropriate for teachers who are interested in teacher inquiry, project-based learning, and documentation of student learning. Although it is based on teaching and inquiry in a Kindergarten 2 classroom, teachers from all grade levels and content areas are encouraged to attend.
