Course Description:

The North Dakota Teacher Resource Coalition (NDTRC) is offering a three-day teacher institute entitled Looking at Lifestyles. We will explore how elements of the past, current events, cultural and physical changes impact and change our sense of place, community and ways of looking at others approaches to their environments.  By combining the history, geography, forestry, technology, and art, participants will connect to practical teaching and learning activities.  

This opportunity will demonstrate team teaching, interdisciplinary curriculum development and implementation and the use of art and technology in strategies that engage students in meaningful activities.  Participants will also become familiar with resources, tools, and information available through NDTRC and its members.
