Palos Verdes Peninsula USD Seminar

(October 29, 2007 - April 21, 2008)

The USC U.S. – China Institute is offering a 36 hour seminar for Palos Verdes Peninsula USD teachers this spring. Priority in enrollment will be given to world history and language arts teachers. Enrollment is limited to 25 teachers per seminar.

Focusing on helping teachers address the California history, social studies, and language arts standards, we will offer presentations on the history and culture of the region, as well as discuss how East Asian case studies can be used to explore a variety of issues.

Teachers who successfully complete the seminar and its follow-up requirements receive:
• $200 in East Asian reference and teaching materials for each participant
• $300 school library grant (per participant) for acquisition of East Asia-focused materials

Interested teachers who have satisfied all seminar requirements can receive six continuing education units from the USC Rossier School of Education. There is a fee for these units.
