What topics are covered in the blended learning program?

The spiraled units of the summer intensive curriculum plays out in the practicum and are aligned to the school year calendar as participants apply their learning to the realities in their school, and reflect on the intended and unintended consequences of their decisions. The practicum begins with a focus on identifying patterns and trends in student data and the school culture in order for participants to detect strengths and weaknesses that they can leverage in their work over the course of the year. Going forwards, participants learn to facilitate and lead collaborative instructional teams, communicate effectively with multiple stakeholders, manage resources, and build competence in systems thinking.
