"I’m having so much fun teaching this year . . . instead of feeling like I was pulling teeth or torturing them,
it was like I had given them a gift. . . ."
Moonshot Summer Institute
The Moonshot Summer Institute is a week-long intensive teacher training designed to provide an immersive, meaningful professional development experience. Participants build units driven by big ideas and powerful essential questions, learn how to integrate the arts into learning and engage students, all while supporting rigorous standards-based instruction. Educators who attend will walk away with strategies to support the higher academic demands required of their students.
Professional Learning Communities
Educators who partake in The Learning Alliance professional development are members of a professional learning community or PLC. They have the opportunity to meet monthly via Zoom room or in person at The Learning Alliance's Moonshot Learning Center for Educators. While they receive training in the Enriched Literacy Framework which encompasses social emotional, foundational and applied literacies, educators are provided time and space to learn, collaborate and reflect on their practice.
