Paid Professional Development for Teachers!

ASU's CPTL is hosting workshops for teachers to receive an introduction to the EAD Roadmap and its incredible library of civic education resources for K-12 teachers. Teachers can earn a $350 stipend for attending a workshop, completing a lesson in their own classrooms with a focus on civics education, and completing a brief post-workshop reflection on the experience. Each workshop is held on the ASU Tempe campus, with meals and parking provided, so there is no cost to participants for attending.

The workshops will also include content seminars from the faculty of ASU's School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership on topics relevant to K-12 Social Studies education, so that teachers can get the chance to develop their content expertise in addition to the introduction to the EAD's teacher resources.
