2014 Summer Institute

The Complex Texts of Community

Join us in beautiful Grafton, Vermont, as we explore its architecture, landscape, forests, cemeteries, and historic resources as a model for how to explore our own communities.

Each day begins with an exploration of a particular community resource through presentation and a hands-on workshop tied to Common Core ELA strategies and content specific standards. Each afternoon includes a specific project-based challenge that asks individuals or teams to connect the material to their own classrooms and communities.
