Between September and December of each year, the teachers who serve as Institute Representatives and Contacts canvass their colleagues and determine the subjects they would like the Institute to treat. The Institute organizes seminars that address teachers' requests and interests.
Offerings: In 2013 the Institute will offer four seminars to participating New Haven Public School teachers:
"Environment, Energy, Building," led by D. Michelle Addington, Gerald Hines Professor of Sustainable Architectural Design
"Literature and Information," led by Jessica Brantley, Associate Professor of English
"Immigration and Migration and the Making of a Modern American City," led by Mary Ting Yi Lui, Professor of History and of American Studies
"Asking Questions in Biology: Discovery versus Knowledge," led by Paul E. Turner, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Teachers interested in applying to one of these seminars should read the full description of the seminar that is available from school Representatives and Contacts.
