SED Hosts High School Summer Literacy Institute with Boston Green Academy

Boston University School of Education will be hosting a two-week summer literacy institute for ninth and tenth graders from Boston Green Academy. The two-week seminar will be held from Monday July 29th to Friday, August 9th, in SED.

Professors Scott Seider and Christina Dobbs collaborated with Boston Green Academy teachers in designing the curriculum for the institute.

The institute will be led by two Boston Green Academy teachers, and four SED undergraduate English Education majors will be serving as teaching assistants. Professors Dobbs and Seider  will each be guest-teaching as well.

Boston Green Academy is a Horace Mann Charter School within the Boston Public Schools, located in the Fenway area. It was organized in 2007 by a group of parents, educators, BPS alumni, and other partners with the mission to ensure that all of its students “graduate prepared for success in college and the workforce.” Visit the BGA website to learn more.
