Silence: A Form of Classroom Participation - Annual Teacher Forum
Sunday, March 3, 20132:00-5:00 p.m., Hassenfeld Conference Center
Join us for a stimulating workshop as we explore the significance of student silence with Kathy Schultz, author of Rethinking Classroom Participation: Listening to Silent Voices and dean of the Mills College School of Education. She will explore: What are the meanings of students' silence in classrooms? What understandings do teachers have about participation? How do we conceptualize a democratic classroom without insisting on student talk? How does silence figure into conceptions of classroom practice? This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Refreshments will be served; dietary laws observed. Register by February 14.
Cohort 11 Snapshots Of Emerging Practice Part 3 - Unit Fair
Monday, June 10, 2013
The third installment of Snapshots of Emerging Practice takes place at the close of the spring semester and is an opportunity for the students to share some aspect of their teaching and their learning about teaching. The event features the teaching units that the interns have developed and implemented for their lead teaching. Further, interns demonstrate how their learning meets the Delet Teaching Standards. Faculty, Mentors, Field Instructors, and fellow interns will comment, question, and offer support to the students.
Cohort 12 Snapshots of Emerging Practice Part 1
Exact time and date TBA
The first of a four part series, this event gives Cohort 11 the opportunity to publicly reflect on their learning. Reinforcing the belief that teaching should not be a private affair that happens behind the closed doors of a classroom, the interns are invited to share and discuss their learning from the first summer of DeLeT.

DeLeT Alumni Summer Institute
July 8-12, 2013
The fifth annual Summer Institute will welcome alumni and local day school teachers for a week-long session to begin work on individual projects. Teachers will support each other as they begin work on projects related to teacher development that will continue on throughout the academic year.
New Teacher Network (NaTaN)
The New Teacher Network is a monthly professional development opportunity for first and second year teachers in grades K-8. In our work training teachers through the DeLeT program, we recognize that however well prepared, novice teachers need continued support and opportunities to develop and refine skills. With that goal in mind we offer this professional development opportunity to supplement the mentoring and induction support we know many schools are offering their teachers.
The primary goal of the New Teacher Network is to nurture new teachers in Jewish day schools during their challenging and exciting first years of teaching and to provide tools to help them develop their professional practice. Through the Network, we hope to encourage the development of a community of teacher-leaders across Jewish day schools in the Greater Boston area. The Network also provides an opportunity for experienced teachers to share their expertise and continue their own professional development. The New Teacher Network is open to all first and second year teachers in area Jewish day schools. (Teachers do not need to be DeLeT alumni to participate.) The group will meet monthly at the Mandel Center for a kosher dinner and lively discussion. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
