Congratulations to the 2016 Yale National Fellows, especially our team of TIP teachers, for completing the Yale National Initiative's summer seminar program at Yale University. You make TIP, Penn, and the School District of Philadelphia proud!

National Fellows attended daily two-hour seminars led by Yale University professors for two weeks in July. They will create curriculum units for their students based on seminar content, guidance from the Seminar Leader, individual research, and feedback from their colleagues. The units will be shared on the Yale National Initiative's website for reference and use by teachers everywhere. Congratulations to all 2016 National Fellows for taking part this distinguished professional development program!
