US Representative Carol Shea-Porter to Give Keynote Address at the 5th Annual Teachers as Researchers Conference

April 25, 2007

The 5th Annual Teachers as Researchers Conference will be held at UNH Manchester on Friday, May 4. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and presentations are scheduled until 3 p.m.

The conference is the capstone event for the UNHM Master of Education and Master of Arts in Teaching programs. More than 50 presenters from around the country will include UNHM M.Ed. and M.A.T. candidates, faculty and staff representing eight universities and colleges, and educators and administrators working within a variety of K-12 contexts. This year, U.S. Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter will give the keynote address.

The Teachers as Researchers Conference highlights the valuable role of teacher research in school reform and professional development. The conference serves as an opportunity for interested educators to network with colleagues, share their work, and deepen their understanding of teacher research.

Some of the topics presented this year will include “Cultural Identity: Focus on what ELL students do know- not on what they don't”; “Using Science Buddies to Encourage Scientific Inquiry”; “The Benefits of Service Learning for High School Students”; “Best Practices for Literature Circles in the Third Grade”; and “Teaching content for language development: High expectations for special needs students”.

The conference is free and open to the public. For more information, visit http://www.unhm.unh.edu/misc/TeacherEdConference/ or call Kate Saturley at 603-641-4318 or email kdh6@unh.edu.
