Showcase Schools 2016-17

Showcase Schools open their doors to educators from across the city to share their promising practices within a specific Learning Focus Area. In order to support their visitors' learning, Showcase Schools develop and share artifacts that explain, demonstrate, or are used in their promising practices. These artifacts serve a number of purposes and are used in various ways, but they are all intended to support interested educators in developing promising practices in their own work. This overarching collection includes one collection for every Showcase School in the 2016-17 cohort, organized alphabetically by the host school's Learning Focus Area.
