Welcome to the future of Middle School
New: The Tarrant
Foundation has announced another $5 million gift to the Tarrant
Institute for Innovative Education, increasing our annual budget to
$1.5 million. The new funding will allow us to triple the number of
Vermont schools we're able to serve.
What We Offer
The Tarrant Institute provides a variety of services to help schools make the transition to engaging, technology-rich teaching and learning.
In exchange for their substantial commitment to a new vision for teaching and learning, we offer our partner schools intensive professional development, leadership preparation and planning, and small grants for innovative technologies -- all free of charge.
To the broader community, we conduct extensive research, evaluation,
dissemination and outreach.
Professional development coordinator Meredith Swallow writes: "One of my biggest regrets as a classroom teacher was not spending enough time reflecting on my practice. I am certainly guilty of blaming time, or committing to that infamous hour of 'later'.
But as Dewey stated, I firmly believe that reflection is a necessary part of the learning process."
Read the rest of her blog post here, and get her suggestions for some reflective winter break reading. But whatever you do, make sure to take some time to relax, enjoy and recharge during the holiday break.
The Tarrant Institute will be closed December 23 - January 5th. See you next year!
