Fisher-Frey Middle & High School Summer Institute: Building Intentional and Targeted Teaching Across the Content Areas AND Cultivating a Successful Learning Climate
Build the Practices and Environment that Promote and Accelerate Student Learning
Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey and the educators of the Health Sciences High and Middle College (HSHMC) know teachers want to learn and apply the instructional routines that have the biggest impact on student learning. These practices are “visible” for teachers and students to see, because their purpose has been made clear, they are implemented at the right moment in a student’s learning and their effect is tangible. Doug, Nancy and the HSHMC teachers will lead an examination of what makes great teachers great, and show how educators at all grade levels and all levels of experience are taking intentional steps toward enhanced professional practice.
Join us to get a close-up look at what intentional and targeting teaching is and what successful teachers do to:
• Plan with purpose • Cultivate a learning climate • Instruct with intention • Assess with a system • Impact student learning
