Interested in participating in the Teaching Competition this year? It is certainly a new time, and many of you have had to become inventive about how you teach your classes.

Plan a 10-minute lesson that you'll teach as if the competition session attendees are your students. Use any visual aids you wish. Involve your "students" wherever possible.

If you choose to participate, you will receive materials and the rubric to help you plan your teaching session. A representative from the AAfPE Conference Planning Committee will be your tour guide and will be in touch soon. 

How to Register for the Teaching Competition: Select "Yes" in the conference registration form.
*If you have already registered for the conference and would like to sign-up to participate in the Teaching Competition, please email Laura Alfano: [email protected].
