About the Residency:
The residency begins with an intensive summer institute, designed to prepare residents with the skills and knowledge needed to serve as part of a teacher team on day one of the school year.
Residents then spend the entire academic year in a graduate-level program, learning to teach in a collaborative mentoring environment. Residents are assigned to an academic department and grade level team and work under the close guidance of experienced educators. Residents devote one evening to completing the rigorous graduate-level coursework. This combination helps Residents link classroom experience to relevant theory and research, learn and rehearse new instructional practices, and ground their own learning in their students’ learning and school context.
