Birmingham, Ala.—Registration is now live for our 2017 SUPER Teacher Workshops and Institutes.

For over 25 years, AHF has partnered with archivists, scholars, higher education institutions, and historic sites to deliver unique and engaging professional development experiences rooted in the humanities to teachers throughout Alabama through the SUPER (School and University Partners for Educational Renewal) Teacher Program.

This program provides graduate-level, content-rich, professional development of the highest quality to outstanding 4th-12th grade public and private school teachers, school librarians and administrators who wish to expand and deepen their knowledge of a particular subject or theme within the humanities.

SUPER is available to all Alabama educators teaching in grades 4-12 entirely free of charge. In its 25-year history, SUPER has served more than 4,000 teachers of the humanities, social sciences, and the arts reaching more than 500,000 students.

This year’s programming is dedicated to the Alabama Bicentennial theme Discovering Our Places. The SUPER Teacher calendar features two one-day spring workshops: WWI Centennial: Alabama in the Great War at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Auburn University on March 29 and Intersections of the Humanities & the Local at the Alabama Department of Archives & History in Montgomery on April 4.

The 2017 line up also features three residential institutes during the summer break: Alabama Fever: A Games-Based Discovery of Territorial Alabama at Troy University, June 20-23;Alabama: Stories of Place in History and Fiction at Auburn University at Montgomery, June 27-30: and First Lady of the Revolution at University of Alabama at Birmingham, July 24-27.
