The Social Psychology Network is hosting its 4th annual Action Teaching Awards, given to honor educators who exhibit excellence in “action teaching” – teaching that “leads not only to a better understanding of human behavior but to a more just, compassionate, and peaceful world.”
Entries can include “classroom activities, field experiences, student assignments, or web-based tutorials and demonstrations.”
According to the SPN website:
“Entries may focus on the individual, group, or societal level, and may address psychological aspects of any major social issue, including prejudice, social injustice, conflict, crime, poverty, hunger, public health, the environment, animal cruelty, and domestic violence, among others.”
The winner receives a $1,000 prize and a free one-year membership in Social Psychology Network.
The contest is open to all teachers. The deadline is January 20, 2009.
