Annual Giving Helps Burgundy Teachers Professional Learning
Burgundy’s faculty and staff find ways to add to their skills and improve their effectiveness all year long, including through events like the CAPS Symposium Elizabeth described. However, summer allows more time to explore topics in-depth and this year is no different. Here are a few of the professional development opportunities that employees are considering:
- Unleash the Power of Teaching AIM for World Language, a program that explores the accelerative integrated methodology to help students achieve language proficiency faster.
- Power, Practice, and Privilege: Unpacking our White Selves, a new diversity conference that is designed to explore, examine, and employ the complexities of what it means to be a white educator in independent schools.
- Four-Day Responsive Classroom Training, to train new and veteran teachers on this evidence-based approach to classroom management.
- Pathways to the Potomac: An Investigation into the DC Area Watershed, a 5-day course that looks at threats to our waterways and methods to mitigate problems.
- National Conference on Differentiated Instruction, with grade- and topic-focused paths through workshops sharing research and practical strategies.
- TERC Investigations K-5 Summer Workshop, a training course for implementing TERC math curriculum in the lower school classroom.
