The Alaska Humanities Forum will sponsor a summer institute for Alaska high school teachers to receive training in a new Alaksa history and cultural studies curriculum currently under development. The curriculum will be piloted for the 2003-04 school year.
The institute will be offered Aug. 9 to 13 at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Teachers must apply by May 7 to be eligible for the all-expenses paid training. Applicants selected to participate will receive a stipend of $300, room and board at UAA, round-trip transportation, three professional development credits, materials and field trips. Teachers also will receive a classroom set of CDs for the program.
In return, applicants are asked to pilot the semester-long curriculum during 200405. Preference will be given to those who can teach the course during the fall 2004 semester.
To apply for the institute, download an application from the Humanities Forum Web site at www.akhf.org.
