2012 APA/Clark University Workshop for High School Teachers

The announcement below (from the wonderful Emily Leary and Caitlin Crowley at the APA) about the 2012 APA/Clark University Workshop for High School Teachers provides details about the nature of the workshop and how you can apply. Several of us involved in this blog have participated in this workshop (if you look closely at the picture above you can spot Kristin and Steve!) and I think I can speak for everyone when I say: APPLY! It's a great experience: wonderful college faculty, wonderful facilities, wonderful relationship-building with other teachers, and you will learn heaps and gobs of good stuff for your classroom! Apply!

From Emily Leary:

"We encourage all interested high school psychology teachers to apply for the eighth annual APA/Clark University Workshop for High School Teachers, to be held July 16-18, 2012 at Clark University in Worcester, MA.  The workshop will be open to 25 teachers. Workshop presenters will include faculty from the Clark University Psychology Department. Michael Sullivan of Hopkinton High School (Hopkinton, MA) and Debra Park of Rutgers University and West Deptford High School (West Deptford, NJ) (retired) will also present. Randy Smith, PhD, of Lamar University (Beaumont, TX) will give the keynote address, titled Though This be Madness, Yet There is Method In't: The Importance of Research Methods in Introductory Psychology

Housing in the Clark campus dorms and materials will be provided for all participants. There is no registration fee. Participants will also receive travel stipends of $100. Five travel scholarships of $250 each will be available to teachers in need of extra travel support (please note that the maximum travel reimbursement any teacher would receive is $250). A hard copy application form (PDF, 40KB) and an online application form are both available.  The application deadline is April 15, 2012 and participants will be selected by approximately May 1.

This Workshop is sponsored by the American Psychological Foundation, Clark University, and APA, with generous support from Lee Gurel, PhD.  Please contact Caitlin Crowley by email (ccrowley@apa.org) or at (202) 336-6076 if you have any questions."
