The North Dakota Teacher Resource Coalition (NDTRC) is offering a three-day teacher institute entitled North Dakota’s Wars: the Civil War and the Cold War. Based at Valley City State University on June 26-28, we will model lessons, protocols and the strength of field experiences to help you develop learning opportunities. By combining history, geography, and environmental studies in a learning cohort we will exchange ideas, approaches and experiences to strengthen our practical teaching and learning activities.
This professional development 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.
Participants will become familiar with:
- coalition resources and opportunities;
- will experience historic site visits and gain understanding of how the content lessons can related to the experience of a site visit;
- will participate in modeled hands-on learning experiences and through facilitated peer reflections will gain insights into how other teacher approach the same subject matter.
This event requires pre-registration. Contact the instructor at: firstname.lastname@example.org or (701) 328-2792.
Graduate credit will be available first day of class.
