National Seminars

Each teacher participating as a National Fellow in a national seminar prepares a curriculum unit to be taught the following year in his or her school and to be shared with other teachers in the school district and elsewhere.

Guides to the curriculum units prepared each year consist of synopses written by their authors and contain recommendations of the school courses and grade levels where the units may best apply.
