Tulane University

Summer 2011 CLASP/NRC Teacher Training Network Competition

March 2nd, 2011 - April 8th, 2011

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies, Tulane University, will provide funding support for Gulf South K-12 teachers to participate in summer teacher institutes/courses offered nationally.

The national Latin American Studies Teacher Training Network: Six Title VI-funded National Resource Centers for Latin American Studies (NRCs)*, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, have committed funding to support professional development for their regional teachers. By collaborating, we hope to give K-12 educators access to the quality summer teacher institutes offered nationally by a network of Latin American studies centers. A selected list of summer opportunities is available here: 2011 CLASP/NRC Teacher Training Network Selected Summer Institutes/Courses for Educators.

Expenses covered: SCLAS will provide funding toward professional development expenses. Expenses might include round trip airfare, lodging, institute/course fees. (In the case of institutes overlapping with the school year, an appropriate expense could also be the cost of a substitute.) Funds must be expended by August 11, 2011.

To apply, please send a resume, a brief budget, and a 1-page cover letter detailing: 1) how you incorporate Latin America in your teaching; and 2) how participation in a specific Latin American studies institute/course will contribute to your professional development. Applications may be sent by e-mail or regular mail to: Stone Center for Latin American Studies, 6801 Freret Ave., New Orleans, LA 70118.

For more information or to discuss options, please contact Denise Woltering Vargas at (504) 862-3143 or dwolteri@tulane.edu.

Application deadline: April 8, 2011

Priority will be given to applicants not previously funded by CLACS and to applicants who demonstrate strong need for an intensive professional development opportunity.
