West Baton Rouge Museum’s
Annual Teachers’ Institute
Prepared for Life: Project-Based Learning
July 15 and 16, 2019
This year’s Teachers’ Institute will explore how project-based learning prepares the student for life allowing him/her to learn about different subjects simultaneously. Achieved by guiding students to identify a real-world problem, develop its solution, and present it through a multimedia approach grounded in a set of 21st-century tools, project-based learning is an exciting approach that equips kids for life in the modern world.
The West Baton Rouge Museum will open registration for the 2018 Teachers’ Institute on Monday, March 25, 2019. Registration for this event will close May 31, 2019. Applicants should be actively engaged in the teaching profession.
The two-day summer professional development series is designed for in-service K-12 teachers across all subject areas. This summer will be the thirteenth year the museum is offering this professional development program. Participants will produce a theme-based lesson with the help of museum staff and special guests for use in their classrooms for presentation before departure on the last day. They will also receive classroom resource materials, a certificate of participation, and a $100 stipend upon completion of all institute activities and assignments. Daily lunches are provided.
The Teachers’ Institute is limited to 25 participants. Availability is based on a first-come-first-serve basis. Registration forms may be downloaded from www.westbatonrougemuseum.com or picked up at the museum.
