Designed by teachers for teachers
30 Clock Hours and/or 3 Credits available from Seattle University College of Education
15 hours of professional coaching throughout the school year for teacher teams (included)
What are the key benefits?
The Summer Institute for K12 teachers (high school preferred; all welcome) provides teachers of all disciplines with highly effective, best practices pedagogical approaches for creating a climate of mutual respect and shared ownership in which students become empowered and accountable leaders who are engaged in their own learning, and the learning of others, inside and outside the classroom.
Teachers are encouraged to apply with their colleagues in teacher teams (singles welcome). The institute is interactive with time for individual reflection, application of new skills, small team break-outs for academic specialties, and collaborative larger group sessions.
You will leave the week fired up for the new school year—with sample class policies, proven strategies and teacher-tested techniques tied to best practices, an understanding of how these strategies and practices align with the Danielson Framework for Teaching evaluation criteria, and with access to ready-to-use curriculum.
As current and former classroom teachers and college faculty, we know that teachers are central to student success. Global Visionaries’ innovative professional development programs for K12 teachers are steeped in our values of inclusion, equity, shared responsibility for learning, academic achievement, emotional growth, leadership development and local-global community service in furtherance of a just and sustainable world.
When we invest in teachers, they reconnect to the passion that brought them to the classroom in the first place. When we invest in teachers, they create supportive, successful and rigorous learning opportunities for each student.
When we invest in teachers, teachers and students benefit.
