What to expect at a Great Expectations®Institute

Fun, learning, friendship, networking, motivation, and inspiration are all yours for the taking at the Great Expectations® Summer Institute, our core training experience. GE sessions are taught by teachers who successfully implement the GE practices in their own classrooms during the school year. Each class features practical strategies you can take back to your classroom to use next year. Your instructors will model the kinds of learning strategies and community building activities with your class that they teach to their students, so you will experience GE at work. Join us at a GE Institute near you!
