June 20, 2017 – The Curriculum and Instruction (C&I) Department of the Bakersfield City School District (BCSD) is constantly looking for ways to improve and enhance the learning experience for the students who attend our schools. In an effort to equip teachers with new tools and concepts, C&I hosted a Summer Institute on the campuses of Cato Middle School and Fletcher Elementary during the first week of summer.
All BCSD teachers were invited to attend the Summer Institute and participate in the several sessions and workshops geared toward improve and develop teaching skills. Some of the session topics included: Clothesline Math, Guided Reading, Anchor Charts, Digital Tools, Stop Animation and many others.
Devin Rossiter, Instructional Specialist for C&I said, “There are over 500 teachers attending the conference during the first week, and in total, we are expecting over 1200 teachers to attend during the four week program.” He also added, “The teachers have the option to choose which breakout sessions they want to attend. Some of them will provide a classroom style learning environment, and others will provide a more one-on-one learning experience.”
The C&I staff is excited to offer this opportunity and are grateful to all the teachers that took the time to attend.
