An active voice in the national dialogue on place-based education

The SEMIS Coalition uses research-based practices in teacher professional development and coalition building to provide sustained professional development throughout the year, including an intensive summer institute.

We also facilitate partnerships between school teams and community organizations, and provide on-site facilitation of professional learning communities, classroom coaching, and active coordination with school administrators.

As these activities take place, we are constantly assessing and evaluating our methods for effectiveness in a variety of dimensions. Please stay tuned to this section for posts about our research findings and evaluation tools.

One thing that being part of the SEMIS Coalition does for the students I work with is value their voices, their intelligence and their energy. It helps them to make their place-based learning public and display the courage it takes to change the world.
