[Beauvoir] Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School in Washington, DC is pleased to announce the 2012 Voices for Learning Summer Institute for early childhood, elementary and middle school teachers. A variety of curricular and experiential learning opportunities are offered through our Center for Teaching and Learning. Workshops and courses include:

  • 4 distinct math workshops that support rich learning and instruction, from early number sense to fractions and decimals

  • A research-based program building best practices in literacy development with preschoolers
  • A writers workshop that goes beyond the basics of conferring, evaluating and developing non-narrative units of study
  • A world language workshop where planning of thematic units includes selecting authentic activities to suit all learning styles and to facilitate instruction in the target language
  • 2 programs that provide school communities with the tools necessary to build positive school climate and culture in highly interactive learning environments
