Full course description
The Wallop Civic Engagement Program Team in partnership with the Trustees Education Initiative is pleased to host a virtual summer professional development workshop June 9 & June 10 for Wyoming social studies teachers. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to RSVP.
The workshop will include some follow-up meetings as participants work in teams to contribute to the Wallop Civic Engagement K-12 Project content. Our purpose is to:
- To build a professional community among Wyoming K12 educators and UW faculty/community college/content experts
- Enhance teaching skills of participants with online learning, hybrid models, face-to-face use of synchronous and asynchronous Wallop materials, among others
- Expand content knowledge of participants
- Create new content K-12 educators and UW faculty can use in their classrooms to engage students 6-16 in social studies content!
We are offering a $500 stipend for teachers for participation in the workshop and content work across the summer including final project presentations in August (e.g., $250 for in-service workshop & $250 for summer work with teacher/faculty teams and final content presentations), and options for continued networking through Wallop Social Studies Learning Community.
We also will have options for teachers to earn graduate credit or PTSB credit.
