To nurture interest in history among students and to encourage their mentors, the AHA is again offering special discounted annual meeting registration rates for high school and undergraduate teachers who are AHA members and who are accompanied by small groups of their students. For the first time, the special rates are also being extended to teachers in graduate schools who are AHA members and are accompanied by their pre-candidacy graduate students (that is, graduate students who are in the early stages of their program).
At last year’s 125th annual meeting in Boston, high school teacher Jason Knoll was accompanied by some of his AP history students. Both Knoll and his students enjoyed the experience, and he wrote an account of it in this article from Perspectives on History.
Teacher-Student Group Rates
- High school teachers can preregister themselves and up to 3 students for $69
- Teachers of undergraduates can preregister themselves and up to 3 students for $197
- Teachers of graduate students can preregister themselves and up to 3 pre-candidacy graduate students (in the early stages of their programs) for $197
Teachers must be AHA members to be eligible for this deal. Those who are not yet members of the Association can join before the preregistration deadline (December 19, 2011) to take advantage of this program. Registration opened last Thursday, September 15, 2011.
