PEOPLE seeks a broad impact through professional development of teachers from participating school districts.
Dozens of teachers are recruited to teach summer classes to PEOPLE high school students in writing, science and math. Classes take place in the morning, Monday through Friday. Teachers receive free room and board on the UW-Madison campus, attend credited professional development seminars and experiment with culturally relevant models of teaching and learning.
Three-credit seminars are taught by UW-Madison faculty to enhance curricular and pedagogical skills. Tuition and books are provided by the PEOPLE program. Past seminars have discussed issues in science, math and literacy, as well as examined strategies for teaching in urban settings.
For more information about teaching opportunities with the summer PEOPLE program, call 608-262-7415 and ask for the summer school coordinator.
