Dean Kim Metcalf was invited to join the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) on Education Talk Radio to discuss the innovative approaches the UNLV College of Education is employing to address the teacher shortage. Listen in below:
The UNLV Office of Undergraduate Research invites high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year to learn more about the innovative research happening at UNLV and participate in the inaugural OUR-UNLV Summer Research Skills Academy.
Does your elementary or middle school student LOVE WRITING? Are they EAGER to try their hands at NEW TYPES of writing? Then our Summer Writing Camps are for YOU! Students of all skill levels are invited to attend, but participants and parents should be aware that this is not an accelerated writing program, nor is it a remedial program. A passion or interest in writing is the main requirement!
Our emphasis is on creating life-long writers who feel confident and comfortable with all the steps of the writing process. Instructors at the Summer Youth Writing Camp are Southern Nevada Writing Project Teacher Consultants who are selected because of their expertise and passion for teaching writing.
Camps will take place in June, so be sure to register now!
For more information, and to register, visit the Southern Nevada Writing Project website.
The Teach Nevada Scholarship provides up to $24,000 (including tuition, fees and books) in funding for a future educator who will serve in a designated Nevada school for at least five years. The scholarship is available to recent high school graduates looking to enroll in a traditional teacher preparation program and individuals who have already completed a bachelor’s degree outside of education who have chosen to pursue an alternate route to licensure (ARL) program.
