GED 635 - Middle Grades Summer Institute (Organizational Strand)

The Middle Grades Collaborative offers an annual intensive institute for Vermont middle-level educators.  The major goal of the institute is to foster young adolescent development where every student becomes: an intellectually reflective person, a person dedicated to a lifetime of meaningful work, a good citizen, a caring and ethical individual and a healthy person.  Participants select either a curriculum, adolescent development, an organization, or a literacy focus, which are applicable to Vermont’s Middle Grade endorsement.  Middle school teams and individuals are encouraged to participate in non endorsement courses such as Brain-Based Teaching and Learning, Technology and Middle School is Not a Building.  Each course selection is listed below:
GED 635A – Middle Grades Curriculum
GED 635B – Nature and Needs of Young Adolescents
GED 635C – Middle Grades Organization
GED 635D – Embedded Literacy in Middle Grades
GED 635E – Middle School is Not a Building
GED 635F – Brain-Based Teaching and Learning
GED 635H – Middle Grades Learners and Technology 

Credits: 3 cr.
