TIP Fall 2021 Program Open House April 21, 2021 – Posted in: Uncategorized

TIP’s Open House will be held virtually on Tuesday May 18th, 2021 at 4:00PM. Please RSVP here and we will send you the zoom details. At this event, each seminar leader will give a brief presentation of what participants can expect in their seminar. There will be time for question and answer after each presentation.

The Teachers Institute of Philadelphia (TIP) invites teachers from around the School District of Philadelphia to participate in its fall 2021 Curriculum Laboratory, a streamlined version of its traditional seminar program. Participants (called fellows) will acquire cutting-edge knowledge from university professors and write original curriculum units based on the material they have learned. Fellows develop creative ways to teach material required by District, state and national curriculum standards, improving results in the classroom. Seminars, listed below, meet weekly, 4:30-6:30pm, from September to December on the Penn campus.* Upon successful completion of the program, fellows earn 20 Act 48 credits and a $1,000 stipend. Applications are now available; the deadline will be Friday, June 11th.
