The West Baton Rouge Museum will open registration for the 2016 Teachers Institute on Monday, April 4. The three-day summer professional development series is designed for in-service K-12 teachers across all subject areas. This summer will be the tenth year the museum is offering this professional development program. Participants will explore current events from 1920 – 1935 leading them to delve into a world of mystery, mayhem, music, and pop culture. Innovative ways to teach using art, music, drama, technology, math, economics, history, social studies, and literature will be presented. Participants will work with museum staff, scholars, and special guests to develop lessons for use in their classrooms. Teachers will be immersed in lectures and presentations from historians, education specialists, and other special guests as well as field trips to museums and cultural centers, and hands-on activities. Participants will receive classroom resource materials, CLU credits, and a $100 stipend upon completion of all institute activities and assignments. Daily lunches are provided along with transportation for field trips.
The Teachers Institute is limited to 25 participants. Availability is based on a first-come-first-serve basis. Registration forms may be downloaded from www.westbatonrougemuseum.com
