Fall Professional Development Workshops

for K-8 and High School Educators

Annenberg / CPB Channel

This fall the Annenberg/CPB Channel presents seven professional development workshops for teachers, including two new workshops: "Science in Focus: Force and Motion" for K-8 teachers, and "Primary Sources: Workshops in American History" for high school history teachers, both launching in October.

Continuing the tradition of quality professional development -- at no cost -- the Annenberg/CPB Channel will feature five additional workshops for teachers in education issues and literature. Workshops are convenient and flexible enough to fit any schedule and any size group. The Fall workshop season begins in September. The deadline for workshop registration is September 15.

What is included in a workshop?
-Ideally, teachers will gather at pre-registered sites to view and discuss the day's workshop. Participants watch the workshop broadcasts or videotapes and participate in on-going discussion before and after each hour-long segment.

- Web-based discussion lists link participants to other sites taking the workshop across the country. - Certificates of completion indicating total hours (typically 16) will be provided to attendees at no cost.

-Optional graduate credit is available at a reasonable cost through Colorado State University.
