Registration is now open to participate in “STUDY CANADA”, a 3 quarter credit/40 clock hour professional development course offered by Western Washington University that provides teachers with an excellent foundation for teaching about our northern neighbor. For almost 40 years, teachers, librarians, social studies supervisors, and education faculty from across the U.S. have attended this renowned program to develop a better understanding of Canada, gain global perspectives of civic issues, and receive numerous resources for curriculum development.
The program’s subtitle reflects the workshop’s additional focus on trans-border issues in the Pacific Northwest. Participants will not only learn from distinguished faculty and government officials but also experience Canada’s culture, history and environment through unique activities not possible through regular tourism. The registration cost includes tuition for credits/clock hours (if needed), instruction, 4 nights’ hotel accommodation, breakfast daily, most course activities and one-way transportation from Seattle, WA to Victoria, BC on the Victoria Clipper ferry.
For more information and instructions for registration, just visit this link. The program takes place from June 22 to June 26 in Seattle, Wash. and Victoria, B.C. Registration is $600, and 10 $200 travel awards will be made available.
