These week-long summer programs feature lecture/discussion sessions, hands-on performance classes, and collaborative lesson-planning workshops, all led by advanced scholars and artists in a variety of fields. Participating teachers watch performances, research in the University of Maryland libraries, learn new technology skills, and join field trips to museums in Baltimore, MD, and Washington, DC. To cap the program, participants develop interdisciplinary lesson plans and return to the University of Maryland for follow-up sessions in the fall and spring to present their work to their colleagues.
- Upon completion of program requirements in the spring, teachers earn 4 MSDE Continuing Professional Development Credits or, with fees, 3 University of Maryland graduate credits.
- Teachers of all grade levels and disciplines welcome!
