For the past three decades, the Middle Grades Institute has provided high quality professional development to educators who work with young adolescents. This summer’s Institute prepares educators, middle school teams, and schools to implement responsive learning environments that address students’ diverse needs, interests, and identities. In the interest of safety and flexibility, this summer we are providing participants with the option to take the Institute completely onlineor to attend one of the regionally-based institutes. The current plan for locations are:
As always, participants may attend in teams or individually, and will have access to interactive workshops, thought-provoking presentations, and facilitated planning time. The focus of this summer's institute is equitable middle grades education and will include rich opportunities to draw connections between this theme and your teaching goals.
MGI is committed to a humane work and learning environment. The balance between in-person and remote learning may be adjusted during the week in response to conditions and need.
