Pride of Place

We produce an annual week-long professional development experience for a dozen middle and high school teachers. Each teacher develops their own unit in English, Environmental Science, and/or Social Studies to teach pride of place.
The 2023 Hot Springs Teacher Institute (July 16-21) was a reosunding success. Participating teachers completed units that were creative, exciting, and thought-provoking. See below for featured units.
