The Center for AIW is super excited to celebrate new learning just around the corner. We started hosting AIW Summer Academies three years ago, with the first one held in Minneapolis, MN, and last year's down in Rathbun, Iowa. This summer popularity surged as we welcome roughly 150 educators from Iowa, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. In fact, demand was so great that we are venturing to a new venue in northwest Iowa because of the phenomenal interest in AIW.
The summer experience will feature two types of Academy experiences: the Coordinator's Academy and Next Steps Academy.
The Center is very excited about launching two experiences for summer 2011: They are taking place together, at two different locations in Iowa!
The Coordinator's Academy is designed for districts moving AIW from one building to another or to support large schools going full staff. Teams attending will grow in their own capacity in AIW, teaming, and strategic planning. At the end of the Academy, all teams will have generated their own AIW implementation plan to take back with them to institute transformational reform in their system.
