What a wonderful three days at our Summer Institute! Thanks to our friends at Brockton High School for hosting us, and to all the teachers who came and shared their energy, passion and ideas. There will be lots for pgEd to get inspirations from as we develop our new unit of lessons on genetics and identity.
