Offered with the National Coalition of Girls' Schools
Offered: June 10 – June 28, 2019 & July 15 – August 2, 2019
Introduction to Girls’ Schools, offered by One Schoolhouse and NCGS, is designed as an orientation to girls’ schools for newly hired teachers. Participants connect and collaborate with each other to explore best practice and research in girls’ school classrooms. Moreover, participants learn from panels of school heads, alumnae, experienced teachers, and new teachers, and therefore are introduced to community members and leaders from around the country. By the end of the four week experience, teachers: have a clear sense of what it means to work in an all-girls school; understand ways that teachers can create a classroom atmosphere and curriculum that maximizes how girls learn; and connect to a national cohort of first-year faculty members.

During this program, participants will spend approximately four hours on coursework for each unit and can set their own pace each week. Coursework and assignments for each unit open on Monday morning, and should be completed by the following Sunday evening. Participants will connect and collaborate with each other through several forms of interactive media, including short videos, and discussion boards. Classes are conducted asynchronously.
