Cultural Perspectives on Environmental Change 2017 Summer Teacher Institute
JUNE 20-22, 2017 Anishinabe Cultural Center Belcourt, ND
Sponsored by the North Dakota Teacher Resource Coalition
Continuing Education Credit available for 2 credits through Minot State University, North Dakota State University or the University of North Dakota.
Again in its annual summer institute for K-12 teachers, the North Dakota Teacher Resource Coalition (NDTRC) is happy to announce plans for this summer's event to be based at the Anishinabe Cultural Center on Belcourt Lake near Belcourt, North Dakota. Sessions will focus on fragility and resilience in the picturesque surroundings of the Turtle Mountains and the International Peace Garden. Participants will learn the technique of "Deep Observational Drawing for Exploration" and how to incorporate it into their classrooms for their students. Learning by doing tested activities from Project WET and Project Learning Tree will continue the theme for the workshop. A distance learning experience with the Hidatsa Earthlodge at Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site at Stanton, ND will showcase the National Park Service's variety of curriculum-based live videoconferences originating from NPS sites across the country that can be brought directly into your classroom. New STEAM-based learning trunks, on-line resources, a Giant North Dakota map (the size of a classroom) and a large state puzzle will also be featured. One evening will include a traditional meal and cultural learning at the Anishinabe Learning, Cultural and Wellness Center. The latest updates in curriculum topics of the North Dakota Studies curriculum are always a highlight of the summer institute.
Once grades are submitted to Continuing Education, please allow up to four weeks for transcript updates to be completed.
Registration for this workshop closes June 12.
