As we all know, there is nothing better than learning from other practitioners. So Boston Day and Evening Academy’s Responsive Education Alternatives Lab (REAL) is a great opportunity. Registration has just opened for the July 8-11 training in Boston.

The objectives of REAL include:

•    Learn the process for creating competencies that both align to the Common Core and meet the needs of your students;
•    Build benchmarks and competencies and scaffold them into a scope and sequence;
•    Work in content teams and by program;
•    Leave with a work plan that allows you to fully implement competency-based learning and assessment;
•    Become part of a national peer-learning network.

There are scholarships available to all registrants by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation.
