From October-December 2012, the Teachers' Inquiry Project, a partner of the Center for Civic Reflection, will be leading a 5-session learning community series with educators across Chicago called, "Dwelling in the Borderlands: a Professional Learning Community for Classroom Teachers, Community Educators, and Museum Educators in Pilsen and Little Village." The series will help educators explore questions like, "How do we understand students' experiences in school and out-of-school, and how are they connected?" and "What are the boundaries that define different teaching environments? How does my practice transcend these boundaries?" Educators will reflect on their teaching practices, share and develop resources, and build community in a cross-disciplinary setting.
Educators participating in the series will meet every other Monday evening (starting October 15) from 6-8:30 pm. Participation includes regular online and in-person collaboration and the creation of a final project, upon which participants will receive a stipend of $75.
