The program begins on August 12th at 9:00 am and concludes on August 14th at 12:00
Designed specifically for teachers who are entering their 2nd through 5th year of teaching, this program will provide hands-on practical workshops so that teachers of any grade level can reflect on the work they do daily in the classroom and enhance their practice in the art and science of teaching.
Major highlights of this 3-day, residential program include opportunities to:
Work intensively with master teachers to understand best practices in individual disciplines and to develop concrete strategies for enhancing student dialogue, promoting safe and supportive classrooms, and developing students’ metacognitive and higher order thinking skills.
Work with Dr. Megan Stuhlman of the Center for Advanced Study for Teaching and Learning at the University of Virginia to connect cutting edge research on highly effective teaching to individual practice.
Work with Veronica Jutras and Minna Ham of the Gordon School to develop the self-awareness and strategies to serve students who bring a diverse array of cultural backgrounds, academic needs, and skills to the classroom environment.
Analyze and reflect upon lesson plan and teaching practice through video critique.
Investigate and experiment with strategies for integrating brain research into lesson design, creating classroom climate, engaging students, assessing effectively, differentiating instruction and incorporating technology.
Collaborate with colleagues in the process of lesson study
NENTS 2.0 focuses on your teaching, and we have organized the conference
