Teachers, parents can benefit from BYU Summer Educator Workshops

Brigham Young University Conferences and Workshops will host the 2007 Summer Educator Workshops series June 4 through July 19.

Summer Educator Workshops are specifically designed for teachers and parents of elementary and secondary students who are interested in teacher recertification, lane-change salary increases, the latest in teaching methodology or a variety of new ideas to use at home or in the classroom.

Each workshop is held for two to five days and may be taken for credit or noncredit. For educators, BYU credit can be transferred to any district, as opposed to district in-service credit, which must stay in the district where it is given.

The workshops will be held at various locations across the BYU campus and at the Provo City Library. Workshops will run for two to five days each and may be taken for credit or noncredit. Tuition starts at $95.

The list of workshops offered this year includes “Teaching Math the Way Children Think;” “The Best in Children’s Literature: Caldecott, Newberry and Beyond;” “Practical Classroom Management for All Teachers;” and “Sing, Sway and Play — Making Music Together in the Elementary Classroom.”

Participants may also attend the BYU Writing for Young Readers Workshop (http://wfyr.byu.edu) and the BYU Symposium on Books for Young Readers (http://bfyr.byu.edu) for credit.

Space is limited, so those interested in participating should enroll as soon as possible.

The workshops are sponsored by BYU’s David O. McKay School of Education and Division of Continuing Education.

For more information, call (801) 422-2568 or visit educatorworkshops.byu.edu.

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
