Students develop non-linear thinking and learn life skills including negotiation, self-advocacy, and professionalism.
We believe professional development should consist of periodic opportunities to interact with peers and the ability to acquire new information to improve teaching quality. The goal of our professional development is to further enhance the student experience by increasing the professional skills of the teachers. Our professional development program is designed to foster active learning, continuously improve content knowledge, and incentivizes teachers to interact with each other and our staff.
The program is anchored by an intense, week-long session taught by University of Pennsylvania faculty. We also provide ongoing training professional through on-line webinars, Skype observations, and membership in an elite network of educators with access to unique instructional materials. The curriculum is currently being implemented successfully in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, California, and Connecticut.
