About TAS

WHAT WE DO

TEACHERS as SCHOLARS (TAS) offers K-12 teachers content-based, two or three-day seminars led by university faculty. The seminars provide teachers the opportunity to discuss a text, topic or issue when they are most likely to benefit - during the school day.

TAS offers seminars in the humanities, arts and sciences as well as interdisciplinary topics and teachers are encouraged to take seminars which interest them regardless of their grade level or content expertise. Annually the program offers 70 seminars of one to three days in length for the 1,000 teachers participating from our 52 member schools and school districts. The seminars are led by faculty from Harvard, Boston University, MIT, Brandeis, Simmons College, Tufts University, the University of Massachusetts (Boston), Berklee School of Music, Boston College, and Wheelock College. Seminars are held at Wellesley College, Brandeis University, Tufts, and MIT.

TEACHERS as SCHOLARS Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit educational organization. The Board of Directors of TEACHERS as SCHOLARS Inc. meets annually to determine policy and program goals. Henry Bolter founded the project in 1996 and he directs the program.
