Countless educators, from classroom teachers to community activists, have told us how valuable the course has been in helping them connect with their vision of education and their desire to nurture a generation of solutionaries. Here are 5 reasons we think educators should sign up for Teaching for a Positive Future:
- It's Flexible, Relevant & Online.
Since the course is online, you can take it from wherever you live,
and the flexible curriculum means you can customize it to best fit your
situation and needs. And what could be more relevant than exploring
the most pressing global issues of our time?
- You'll connect.
Teaching for a Positive future gives you four weeks to nurture deep
connections with other teachers who share your passion for creating a
better world through education, and with whom you can share ideas, gain
new insights, and learn new strategies during the course and beyond.
Our Online Commons (the discussion forum) is one of the most valuable
aspects of the course.
- You Get 2 for 1.
Our bonus exercises and resources mean that you basically get two
courses for the price of one. The bonus packet includes 20 additional
exercises and several additional resources to help you extend your
learning and continue to integrate humane education into your work and
life. The bonus packet is only available to participants of Teaching for
a Positive Future.
- The Course Instructor Has Education in Her Blood.
Course instructor, Marsha Rakestraw, comes from a long line of
teachers and has been an educator at the PreK-graduate levels, having
taught a variety of subjects in a variety of settings. Some of her
worst and best experiences have occurred while as a student and a
teacher, and she passionately believes in the power of education to
change the world.
- You Can Earn CEUs. Further your professional development credits by earning 4.5 Continuing Education Credits (CEUS) through the University of Maine (which are often applicable to other states).
Teaching for a Positive Future is also a great way to refresh and reinvigorate your teaching soul. Sign up now for our next session (July 9 - August 3.)
