A Conference for Educators to Reflect on Belonging, Curriculum, and Identity in the 9th and 12th Grades

How can we better support students as they enter into and graduate from our high schools?

The 9th and 12th grade years are important periods of transition that invite different approaches to teaching and learning. To support our students well, we need to understand them and our school contexts. This conference will offer an opportunity to learn from a range of inspiring educators who are rethinking how best to support our students.

Overview

The Tang Institute invites you to join fellow educators at Phillips Academy on June 16 and 17, for a two-day conference that will explore strategies for supporting student transitions into and out of high school.

Through a series of workshops, participants will examine different case studies related to various aspects of school transitions and imagine possibilities for 9th and 12th grade education in their home contexts. This conference is designed to inspire and prepare educators who wish to improve their own practice and schools.

Workshop leaders will include a range of teachers and administrators who have created and taken part in a range of inspiring initiatives. Their examples will spark discussions around assessment, belonging, mentorship, and pedagogy as it pertains to the development of community and curriculum. Workshop leaders will help participants reflect upon how they can catalyze change in their home schools.

Conference participants may apply their learning through a year-long Action Research Program supported jointly by the Tang Institute and Dr. Rebecca Stilwell, lecturer at the Klingenstein Center, Columbia University.

The conference will be hosted by the Tang Institute on the campus of Phillips Academy, located at 180 Main Street in Andover, Massachusetts.
