Overview

The Format

The Content

"One of the best professional experiences in which I have engaged. All participants are leaving feeling empowered, challenged and excited, and are set to bring these feelings to their own teaching as well as that of their colleagues. The JV/Varsity splits created a safe place for us to orient and learn, and then build as we went forward on the specific learning task. The Summercore Primer was a terrific blend of content, organization and healthy irreverence. The categories are well constructed, it is all easy on the eye, and the overall impact is empowering. I will return to the Primer regularly. By focusing on how to teach a topic, we were compelled to learn the relevant skills even more deeply. This process resulted in an engaging Carnival. The Carnival was fantastic: faculty felt empowered both in their teaching and learning new material, the sharing amplified the group's sense of community, and we are ready to now go forward."
