Secondary teachers are invited to spend a week at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul exploring the connections between primary sources, the inquiry process, and culturally relevant pedagogy. Participants will analyze maps, photographs, and other primary sources from different time periods in history. Each day of the institute teachers will have dedicated time for individual curriculum writing, working collaboratively with other teachers, and engaging with presenters.
The dates and times of the Institute are as follows:
- Monday, June 18, 1-5 p.m.
- Tuesday, June 19, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 20, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
- Thursday, June 21, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
To accommodate teachers coming from outside the Twin Cities metro area, the institute will have a Monday late start and Thursday early release. There is optional housing available in St. Paul, and mileage stipends are also available for teachers driving from greater Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Applications are being accepted now through Sunday, April 1, 2018. Teachers who attended an IUM regional workshop or submitted a classroom recording will receive priority consideration, but neither is a requirement for selection. Successful applicants will be notified by April 16. Teachers who attend the full four-day institute will receive a $300 stipend.
