Wisconsin's Native American Studies: Infusing History, Language, Stories, Culture, and Environmental Thought Into Your Classroom

June 17-18, 2019 | 9 AM-3 PM (each day)

$200 per person

Audience: Grade 4-12 Educators 

Gather ideas on where to find resources, how to utilize them and develop them to fit your classroom needs

Would you enjoy learning how to blend in Wisconsin’s Native American cultural histories, languages, and contemporary issues into your classroom curriculum?  Would acquiring resources and ideas to help you start your own library of materials be beneficial to you and your students?  Would visiting a documented, many thousand-year-old village site, as well as seeing and touching historical marker trees and speculating as to their meaning, be of interest to you?  

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then this session is for you!  Please join guest presenter, Joe Cook of Sparta, for a two day seminar where you will be provided with numerous resources, enlightened by stories of student engagement in this topic as witnessed by Joe, presented power points with ideas for student travel and how to fund raise for it, as well as visiting a few  local marker trees, including a site of Native American habitation for over 10,000 years.  On the second day of the seminar, participants will carpool to the tree and village sites, returning to West Salem for brainstorming and wrap up activities.  If you want a better and more personal understanding of Wisconsin’s first people with a local flare, you will not want to miss this opportunity.  See you there!
