Summer Program for Educators 

This two-week summer workshop for teachers, professors and administrators, taking place July 8 - 18, will focus specifically on several human dilemmas of the twenty-first century at both the micro and the macro levels. The course will be divided into two sections: in the morning, teachers will focus on themselves and their needs in the classroom. 

Teachers will learn collaborative skills for lesson planning and create lessons they may use in their classrooms for September with meaningful discussion on new practices and assessment. Four components, ranging from the teacher as reader and writer, as well as the teacher as foundation for multi-modal literacies, will help teachers develop their educational tool boxes.
