The Summer Institute is a two-day event designed to provide participants with practical, research-based information centered on revealing the potential of under-resourced (and ALL!) learners.

Do not miss three keynote addresses by internationally-recognized educators Dave Burgess (Teach Like a Pirate), Myron Dueck (Grading Smarter Not Harder), and Jeremy Anderson (Next Level Living). Select from multiple specialized breakout sessions that will provide classroom strategies and best practices around this year’s theme:Challenges and Opportunities: Teaching Children of Poverty.

New for 2018, a Post-Conference Poverty Simulation has been added on Thursday, June 21. This half-day event is designed to promote greater awareness, increase understanding, and inspire local change. Attendees role-play four 15-minute ‘weeks’ in poverty and the stressors faced by many under-resourced families. Registration is limited to 88 participants. Register separately for this post-conference activity.

Learn how to reach every student, every day. Seating is limited. Register now!
