THE MELINDA KREI EDUCATOR FELLOWSHIP
If you’re looking for an even more hands-on experience than a workshop, this free program is for you.
Structured like a seminar, the fellowship includes a pre-festival session, a handful of required readings, post-festival discussion sessions, a final presentation/capstone in August, and a list of required festival films. Fellows will be required to create and share a teaching object (assignment activity, mini curricular module, lesson plan, etc) as their capstone activity of the program.
Educators selected for the FREE program will receive a festival pass (retail price: $175), a Milwaukee Film membership (for one year), and copies of required readings/books. The fellowship should take approximately 30-40 hours to complete between April and August, with the bulk of that time spent viewing films during the festival (late April-early May) and a three-day summer intensive in June.
The fellowship is open to educators working with elementary, middle, and high school aged students in out-of-school time and traditional classroom settings (and everything in between!) as well as to pre-service educators hoping to gain specific expertise in the use of film in their future practice. Meetings will be facilitated by rockstar educators and former Fellows.
