Oregon Humanities: Summer 2012
Oregon Humanities is proud to announce the twenty-three Oregon secondary school teachers who were chosen as Idea Lab Teaching Fellows for the 2012 Idea Lab Summer Institute, a three-day residential program for Oregon high school students that takes place in July.
Fellows worked with Oregon Humanities staff to recruit high school students and planned and taught at the institute, which explores the pursuit of happiness. In doing so, fellows received a stipend, earned continuing education credits, and enhanced their teaching skills.
