Picturing America Summer Program

Calling all history teachers…check out this amazing opportunity! NEH Encourages School Teachers to Apply for 2009 Summer Programs in the Humanities WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 3, 2008)—American educators across the country are encouraged to apply now for 2009 summer study opportunities in the humanities.  Each summer, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports rigorous national, residential seminars, institutes, and workshops located in the United States and abroad.  Program participants receive stipends to help defray travel and living expenses. For 2009, 31 Summer Seminars and Institutes for School Teachers are being offered.  Interested school teachers must apply by March 2, 2009.  Educators can apply to no more than one program.  Seminars and Institutes are 2-6 week programs that take place in the United States and abroad.  Summer Seminars and Institutes for School Teachers provide K-12 educators with a means to deepen their understanding of important subjects in the humanities. For the summer of 2009, 20 Landmarks of American History and Culture workshops are being offered to K-12 educators.  Interested school teachers must apply by March 16, 2009.  Educators may apply to and participate in no more than two workshops.  The Landmarks workshops are 1-week workshops that take place at sites of historical or cultural significance across the nation and provide educators with the opportunity to engage in intensive study and discussion of important topics in American history and culture. For more information about the 2009 summer programs in the humanities for teachers, including eligibility and application information and details about each of the seminars, institutes, and workshops offered, please visit http://www.neh.gov/projects/summer09.html.

Three day weekends are a gift straight from heaven!  I could not be more thrilled that we are headed into one of those.  I have been on turbo speed for the past few months and I need a reason to take a forced break- this seems like the perfect excuse to do just that!

Working to open a school in August is hard work, I continue to be amazed at the learning community that is being pulled together and I am excited to see it all unfold!

This week:

I hope you had a meaningful week full of many learning gifts.  To those who finished school this week-congratulations! For those who have some time yet- keep doing what is best for kids!

Happy weekend!

I love your Searching For da Vinci resource! It’s exactly what I was thinking when I wrote my first blog post on da Vinci. The Bloom’s Taxonomy visuals are great, too! I’d like to hear more about what you are doing with it. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Peggy, as you will remember your post was the inspiration for this line of thought!
