David O’Connor, Educational Consultant - American Indian Studies Program, Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) will present a day long workshop which will provide in-depth discussion of the American Indian Studies and Wisconsin Act 31. The focus of the workshop will be to help educators understand and implement Wisconsin Act 31, which is the state law requiring all public school districts and pre-service teacher programs to provide instruction in the history, culture, and tribal sovereignty of the eleven federally-recognized American Indian nations in the state of Wisconsin. The workshop is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and information they need to integrate the requirements of American Indian Studies into lesson plans, material selections, pedagogical practices, and district curriculum. Information about Wisconsin Indian nation’s histories, treaty rights, sovereignty, and cultures will be presented throughout the workshop.
