Dear Colleagues,
We have enjoyed designing this year’s Stanford Summer Teaching Institute for you - collecting requests and suggestions from our participants over the past four years, considering the most engaging and useful course topics, and finding the best instructors to lead our workshops. This year we are offering 10 courses focused on: a variety of content areas & teaching tools to use with all content; on elementary, middle and secondary levels; and on ways to manage student learning & teacher professional development. All of our courses offer opportunities to practice new methods, and time to design learning materials for individual classrooms, as well as time to connect (and reconnect) with colleagues. We hope you enjoy considering what we have to offer as much as we enjoy offering it to you, and we look forward to learning with you in August.

With warm regards,

Jennifer Lynn Wolf
Director, Stanford Summer Teaching Institute
