David O’Connor returns to CESA 3 to engage social studies teachers in American Indian Studies.  David will answer tough questions, provide insightful cultural background, and share practical suggestions for implementing Act 31.  *This session appropriate for K-12 social studies teachers.

Description: This two half-day workshops will provide in-depth presentation and discussion on American Indian Studies in Wisconsin (often referenced as Wisconsin Act 31). The focus of the training is to help educators understand and implement Wisconsin Act 31, which is a 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 the Wisconsin American Indian nations’ histories, treaty rights, sovereignty, and cultures will be presented throughout the training workshop.

The goals of the training are to share best practices, information, model programs, and resources with administrators and teachers so that they are knowledgeable about American Indian Studies in Wisconsin and are able to meet the requirements of Wisconsin Act 31.

Target Audience: Administrators, Principals, Director of Curriculum and Instruction, K-12 Teachers

***Please note this training workshop will meet the licensure stipulation if the training workshop is completed along with completing two follow-up assignments. These assignments will be discussed in detail at the completion of the training workshop.
