Hey guys, I don't know about you, but I love to take advantage of my time off to apply to professional development for the summer. Who has time in their school day to get those applications done? Winter break is a great time to start planning for PD for the summer.
Applications for PD are usually due in February or March. Don't wait too long to ask friends and colleagues for those recommendation letters.
A couple of great opportunities you should check out:
1. Center for Civic Education is hosting the American History and Civics Academy. Check out civiced.org for more information. The application is due April 1st.
2. Supreme Court Institute from streetlaw.org application deadline is March 15th
3. Gilder Lehrman Institute has great Teacher Seminars around the country. Check out gilderlehrman.org application deadline is February 18th.
