Call for Proposals & Registration Open for LA Educating Girls Symposium

NCGS is accepting proposals for its upcoming Educating Girls Symposium at Westridge School in Los Angeles on October 23, 2017. This professional development opportunity is for educators to come together and exchange best practices for teaching and working with girls.
School Communities: The Power of Many Voices will address:

  • How do the various "communities" in your school -- students, teachers, administrators, coaches, parents, alumnae, and more -- collaborate to create an environment where girls learn to find and use their voices effectively?
  • How are the mission, vision, and values of your school reflected in the development of your school community?
  • How do you ensure your school is a space for the equitable expression of differences while also encouraging inquiry, varying viewpoints, and open dialogue?
  • How does your school approach the concepts of privilege and social justice within our globally expanding world?
We invite you to submit a proposal to present on your area of expertise. Click here to learn more about the call for proposals guidelines and instructions, and click here to access the submission form. The deadline for proposals is August 21, 2017.

Fall Session of "Introduction to Girls' Schools" Online Course for New Hires

Due to popular demand, a fall session of the online course "Introduction to Girls’ Schools" will be offered October 2-27, 2017!

Offered by NCGS and One Schoolhouse, "Introduction to Girls’ Schools" is designed as an orientation to girls' schools for newly hired faculty and administrators. Participants connect and collaborate with each other to explore best practice and research in girls' school classrooms. Learning from a panel of respected school heads, experienced teachers, and new teachers, participants are introduced to community members and leaders from around the country. By the end of the four-week experience, educators have a clear sense of what it means to work in an all-girls school, understand ways teachers can create a classroom atmosphere and curriculum that maximizes how girls learn, and connect to a national cohort of girls' school colleagues.

In order for your new hires to thrive and succeed at their first girls' school, it is valuable to provide them an orientation to the most effective methods for teaching girls. This course provides instructional insight to all faculty and administrators new to girls' schools, be they seasoned educators or new professionals.
