‘Project Zero’ is a prestigious program conducted at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Over the past two summers, twenty Massapequa teachers and administrators from the elementary and middle school levels have participated in this week-long institute. The program brings together hundreds of educators from around the globe to learn in a collegial setting. Through the generous support of the Massapequa Community Fund, many of our elementary and middle school educators have benefited from the professional development this program has afforded.
‘Project Zero Classroom’ assists educators in creating innovative learning environments that promote deep learning and understanding. The program details various frameworks that allow participants to look at teaching analytically, develop new approaches to planning and make informed decisions about instruction.
We are most appreciative to the Massapequa Community Fund for making this exceptional opportunity possible and confident that our participation will assist the Massapequa School District in advancing educational excellence!
