NCGS and the Online School for Girls (OSG) continue their successful strategic partnership by offering an exciting online professional development opportunity this summer and fall. "Introduction to Girls' Schools" (formerly known as "Single Gender Education: An Orientation for New Faculty") provides instructional insight to all teachers new to girls' schools, be they seasoned educators or new to the profession. In order for your newly hired faculty to thrive and succeed at their first all-girls school, it is necessary to provide them with approaches to teaching and learning that are most effective for girls.
The course allows participants to connect and collaborate with each other to explore the possible implications of research on the classroom environment. Educators will also discuss ways to create a collaborative student-centered learning space, including how technology can help achieve these goals. Ultimately, teachers will gain a clearer understanding of what it means to work in an all-girls school and will come away with ideas of how to create a classroom atmosphere and curriculum that maximizes how girls learn.
"Introduction to Girls' Schools" is a four-week long course and is currently scheduled twice during the summer months (June 22-July 17 and July 20-August 14) and once in the fall (October 13-November 6).

NCGS is currently accepting proposals for its upcoming Educating Girls Symposium, a professional development opportunity for educators to come together and exchange best practices for teaching and working with girls.
