Becoming a Teacher High School Summer Workshop is July 17-20, 2017
Are you interested in the teaching profession? Transition from student to teacher as you learn subject matter outside the classroom at some of Pittsburgh's well-known exhibition sites including the:
- Fort Pitt Museum
- Heinz History Center
- Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium
- The Andy Warhol Museum
Create lesson plans based on your experiences and topic of choice from the exhibits, and then teach your workshop peers, demonstrating your learned presentation skills.
Additionally, education professors from Point Park University will share with you their insights and many years of real-world experience teaching in the classroom.
