Endowment for Tecolote colloquia for New Mexico educators K-16

Tecolote provides K-16 educators in New Mexico a series of colloquia for building ideas through the structured discussion of centrally important texts and ideas. Instituted in the fall of 2002 with 64 teachers participating, Tecolote consists of eight one-day colloquia on Saturdays in September and February. A unifying theme is selected each year from the "great books" and this theme governs the integrated program of readings Each session follows the discussion mode of learning developed at St. John's and includes a small group tutorial, a larger group seminar and a luncheon with a brief presentation. Participants receive an honorarium for attending. The primary purpose of Tecolote is to return revitalized teachers to their classrooms who are better able to motivate student learning. Both the material studied and the way it is approached are about rediscovering the founding principles of the U.S. and helping build strong, intelligent participation in our civic institutions.
