The Consortium for the Teaching of the Middle Ages (TEAMS) is Seeking Submissions for its Annual K-12 Teaching Prize
TEAMS is seeking submissions for its third annual teaching prize for K-12 teachers. Teachers are encouraged to submit their original, unpublished lesson plans dealing with medieval studies topics for consideration. Teachers of winning submissions will receive cash prizes and publication of their lessons in the Once and Future Classroom. Lessons might have been designed as part of a medieval unit, a component of a survey course, or be drawn from a class designed around a specific text or topic (i.e. Beowulf or Robin Hood).
Purpose: To recognize excellence in designing and teaching lessons in medieval studies, including but not limited to such areas as history, literature, and art history, in K-12 schools.
Award: Winning lessons will be published in the fall edition of the Once and Future Classroom. The first prize recipient will receive a cash award of $1000, and the second prize recipient will receive $500. Additionally, the first prize recipient will be provided with a subsidy to attend the following year's International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to formally accept his or her award. Circumstances allowing, the possibility also exists for first prize recipients to be asked to present their papers at a TEAMS-sponsored session at the conference.
Deadline: April 15, 2013.
