JANUARY 25, 2013: The Academic Pediatric Association (APA) has named the Longitudinal Faculty Development and Departmental Educational Academy Initiative at Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC) the recipient of the prestigious 2013 APA Teacher Program Award. The Initiative is a two-phase professional development program, the first of which is the Master Teacher Leadership Development Program (MTLDP), administered by the Graduate School of Education and Human Development for the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS). The CNMC faculty comprise the Department of Pediatrics of SMHS.
The E3 Initiative, a GSEHD student organization, is hosting a Global Summit on Issues Affecting Women and Girls Worldwide at George Washington University on February 14, 2013. The event is being held in conjunction with V Day: One Billion Rising, a worldwide campaign and call to action based on the staggering statistic that one in three women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime.
On his blog, Class Notes, Dean Michael Feuer offers a message to the GSEHD community:
U.S. News and World Report has decided to reclassify GW as “unranked” in light of the University’s disclosure of an error in the way one statistic, percentage of incoming freshmen who graduated in the top 10% of their high school class, had been reported. This unfortunate move on the part of USNWR is explained by its director of data research here.
The Graduate School of Education and Human Development's Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy, in collaboration with GSEHD's Center on Equity and Excellence in Education, recently launched the Teaching English Language Learners (TELL) Graduate Certificate Program. GSEHD and CEEE have teamed with Accomack County Public Schools on the Eastern Shore to make the program available to general education teachers who are not trained to work with ESL students.
The program, designed to equip teachers with the knowledge and skills needed to work with English Language Learner (ELL) students, is funded by a $1.9 million, five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Language Acquisition's National Professional Development Program.
The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) has awarded the 2012 High School Teacher of Excellence Award to Sarah Tanner-Anderson from Amelia County High School in Amelia, Virginia. Educational Administration doctoral student Tanner-Anderson is a member of the Virginia Association of Teachers of English and one of 12 high school teachers nationwide awarded this year.
