Michael Sandler, psychology teacher from Arlington HS (MA) sent me this announcement about a summer learning opportunity for high school psychology teachers. Looks like a valuable experience! Mike will be leading this course (which counts for continued education credit). Here's the course description on their web page (where you can also find the registration form)
This institute will provide teachers with practical tools for instructing secondary-level students. The sessions will focus on student-centered activities, project-based learning, and new resources to help teachers and students connect with the wide-ranging and ever-changing field of psychology. There is an emphasis on cross-cultural perspectives and the use of technology in the curriculum. Collaboration with colleagues is encouraged as we share successful ideas and useful information that will enrich our courses.
