Lilly Teachers to discuss projects

October 2 2007

Teachers in grades K-12 are invited to the Lilly Fellows Teachers’ Academy from 5-7 p.m., Oct. 3, at Indiana State University’s College of Education 11th Floor Conference Room #1, to hear about the professional renewal projects of several recipients.

Presentations will be made by Lilly Teacher Creativity Fellowship recipients:
Bonnia Fouts - Navigating Ni-ihau to Navigation Know-How
Al Jacquay - Group Creative Problem Solving Activities
Brenda Krieger - High Ability Education in Indiana
Steve Makurat- Exploring South America
Marji Morris - Reading/Writing Workshop for Middle School
Janice Plummer - Trip to Africa

This free program will be most helpful for full-time teachers, in both public and private schools, who are interested in applying for a 2008 Lilly Teacher Creativity Fellowship, or who would like to explore some of the presentation topics for their own classroom work.

Lilly Endowment Inc., which funds the fellowships for Indiana teachers’ professional renewal projects, each year awards a maximum of 120 grants in the amount of $8,000 each, and up to 10 grants at $25,000 each.

Since the Teacher Creativity Fellowship Program began in 1987, 1,825 Indiana educators have received grants.

Proposals to the Lilly Endowment must be postmarked by November 9, 2007. Recipients will be notified by February 29, 2008. More information is available at http://teachercreativity.org.
