US Dept. of Education Teacher Summer Seminars

Join ED for our second annual Teacher Summer Seminars. This summer’s seminars–presented by teachers–will consider strategies used by teachers to ensure students’ civil rights in the classroom and to engage them through personalized learning. The seminars take place at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C., and teachers can also join online through our webinar.

#1 Civil Rights in the Classroom
Tuesday, June 26 from 6-7:30 p.m. (Eastern)
This seminar offers an overview of the Civil Rights Data Collection and practical advice from current teachers, a guidance counselor, and a parent about how to protect students’ civil rights in the classroom. Presenters will explore strategies to prevent bullying, engage all students, present culturally relevant lessons, and work with parents to ensure the rights of students with disabilities.

#2 What Teachers Need to Know about Personalized Learning
Tuesday, July 10 from 6-7:30 p.m. (Eastern)
This seminar presents perspectives on an emerging topic for educators: creating adaptive instruction for every student in the class. Presenters from the Department of Education will provide insights about the meaning, purpose, and future of personalized learning. Teachers will discuss how they use real-time data to individualize instruction and to engage students with varied abilities.

The seminars are offered both at the U.S. Department of Education (400 Maryland Avenue, SE, Washington, DC 20202) and on the web.

The seminars are free but space is limited, so reserve your spot now!
