Enrichment Courses:
Teaching From The Inside Out, Edmund Sprunger
This course will look at the interplay between a growing child’s physical skills, cognitive capacities, and ability to regulate emotions. A specific focus of this course will be the ways in which children depend on their relationships with parents and teachers to develop these skills. The goal of this course is to use this knowledge of the developing child to help children and parents make full use of the information we teachers have to offer them.

The Institute is located in the beautiful Woodrow Wilson High School, surrounded by a multiplicity of restaurants and close to a metro line giving easy access to all sites of interest in Washington, DC. Parking is available at and adjacent to the school.
