Inquiry and the Ancients: A Mini Teacher Institute
Presented by the Penn Museum and the University City Science Center

July 13 – July 14, 2015
8:00 am – 3:00 pm

This FREE two-day mini institute is offered to all middle school (6th-8th grade) teachers in the School District of Philadelphia, KIPP, and Mastery Charter schools. Teachers from these schools are also eligible for the Penn Museum’s Unpacking the Past program, which provides free outreach lessons and museum visits (including buses) for all of their 7th grade classes.

The educational value of a class visit to the Penn Museum can be greatly enhanced by what happens before and after the trip. Participants in this FREE Mini Institute will learn from leading experts in the field of archaeology, receive behind the scenes tours of the Penn Museum’s world-class collections, and be given time and space to work collaboratively with other teachers to create extension lessons for their classrooms using inquiry-driven approaches. Parking, breakfast, and lunch are included on both days of the Institute and teachers will receive ACT 48 credits for attending. Those teachers who complete their pre- and post-visit lessons will receive a $100 stipend.
