Teachers as Scholars
It has inspired me to continue learning and growing. Rejuvenated my desire to teach and create. I have already brought some of the ideas into my classroom!
Teachers as Scholars (TAS) is a partnership between Princeton University and surrounding schools and districts formed with the objective of providing scholarly and intellectually engaging opportunities for teachers. Seminars are taught by faculty and staff from Princeton University and span a wide range of topics and subject areas. Each seminar is open to teachers from any grade level or content area, and they are intended to promote life-long learning by elementary and secondary level teachers. Specific dates and topic descriptions are provided on the Seminars page and in the downloadable 2016-2017 TAS Brochure.pdf . The deadline for teachers to register is October 14, 2016. Seminars meet from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m., unless noted otherwise. Schools generously provide release time for the teachers on seminar days. In preparation for each seminar, participants usually complete readings which are mailed in advance.
This year Teachers as Scholars will include teachers at all grade levels and subject areas from our member schools/districts. Members attend our seminars at a reduced cost. Non-member districts and schools are invited to attend as space allows. The non-member cost is $175 for a one day seminar and $325 for a two day seminar. If you would like to become a member of Teachers as Scholars or need information about space availability, please contact Anne Catena, Ed.D. or call 609-258-3336.
The Teachers as Scholars program began at Harvard University in 1996, and has grown to include colleges and universities across the country. Now in its 18th year, the TAS program at Princeton University was originally launched with support from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. Since 2001-02, TAS at Princeton has been sponsored jointly by area schools and districts working together with the Program in Teacher Preparation.The Program is registered as a Professional Development Provider for the State of New Jersey.
