There is an attachment to this memorandum which lists varied professional development opportunities for social studies teachers in history and civic education at all grade levels. Many institutes occur outside the state of Arkansas, and sponsors pay all expenses of successful applicants.
Additional professional development opportunities will appear on the social studies listserv maintained by Barbara Patty, Social Studies Specialist, Arkansas Department of Education, email@example.com or 501-682-5303. To subscribe (at no charge) to the listserv, go to http://list.k12.ar.us/mailman/listinfo/acss and follow the directions. Teachers may also contact their education service cooperatives for professional development opportunities in social studies.
