GED 635 - Middle Grades Summer Institute (Organizational Strand)

The Middle Grades Collaborative offers an annual intensive residential institute for Vermont middle-level educators.  The major goal of the intensive residential institute is to foster young adolescent development where every student becomes: an intellectually reflective person, a person en route to a lifetime of meaningful work, a good citizen, a caring and ethical individual and a healthy person.  The course will begin on Sunday afternoon and includes evening activities throughout the week.  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 are encouraged to attend together and to enroll in the Professional Learning Communities: Team Teaching in the Middle Grades (5-9).  Individual sections are listed below:
GED 635A – Curriculum and Instruction at the Middle Level
GED 635B – Nature and Needs of the Adolescent
GED 635C – Organization of Middle Schools
GED 635D – Adolescent Literacy for Middle School Students
GED 635E – Professional Learning Communities:  Team Teaching in the Middle Grades

Credits: 3 cr.
