The Teaching Section at NCSA regularly sponsored a workshop for high school teachers of sociology. Beginning in 1999, the North Central began this commitment to sponsor a workshop for high school teachers living in the region where the annual meeting was to be held. Teachers may receive continuing education units for attending.

To participate, contact:

Lissa Yogan, Valparaiso University, Lissa.Yogan@valpo.edu

Past examples of sessions included:

• Videos in the Sociology Course
• Simulations and Games for Teaching Sociology
• Sharing Lesson Plans (each teacher brings a favorite lesson to share)

Attendees are introduced to the services of the American Sociological Association’s Teaching Resources Center and are provided information about various publications and websites with active learning instructional strategies, are given opportunities to network with other high school sociology teachers, and leave the workshop with roughly 100 active-learning instructional strategies (“lesson plans”).

The North Central Sociological Association awards Professional Development Certificates to faculty members who attend at least five designated teaching and professional development sessions at the annual meeting each year.
