University Summer Camp Teacher Track Archives
The goals of the Summer Camp at NDSU include introducing tribal college students to STEM disciplines and career opportunities, exposing them to city and campus life, attracting them to four year STEM programs, and engaging tribal high school and college faculty in career improvement and lesson development. This two-week camp is usually offered in the first two weeks of June each year. The camp has two tracks, tribal college student track, and instructor and teacher track.
In the 2015 Teacher track, six Tribal college faculty and two Reservation high school math/science teachers worked together with NDSU and UND faculty to develop lesson plans for the high school tribal summer camps to be held later at the tribal college sites and for the upcoming Sunday Academy sessions. The teams work on designing and developing the high school tribal camp lessons in the first week of the University summer camp while the second week is focused on designing and developing lessons for the Sunday Academy program.
