Summer Learning Opportunities

Offered in CPS
Developmental Designs, June 25-28 (for teachers in grades 6-10)
Teaching and learning are weakened by misbehavior, lack of a safe, inclusive community, and students feeling disconnected in school. The practices in the Developmental Designs approach are designed to meet adolescent needs by addressing these key elements of effective teaching.
