Transform your understanding of your students and yourself as a teacher with Hidden Sparks blended format summer course (June 29 – August 3, 2016). The Hidden Sparks Learning Lenses curriculum helps educators learn how to observe, reflect and plan for all students in their classrooms. Using multiple lenses (developmental, temperamental, ecological) and real-life case studies, educators learn to understand student strengths and challenges, and identify strategies for all learners, including those who struggle academically and present challenging social-emotional issues. Educators will expand their instructional and conceptual toolboxes to improve student achievement.
Learning Lenses, a collaboration between Hidden Sparks and The Churchill School and Center, is Hidden Sparks’ core curriculum. This course is designed for faculty members of day schools and yeshivot. We welcome general and Judaic studies classroom teachers, resource room staff, guidance personnel, and administrators.
