MOHAI Teachers' Institute- Multiple Perspectives on Pacific Northwest History
July 17-19, 2006 9am - 4pm at MOHAI
Credits: 2 credits or 20 clock hours $150 flat fee; additional fees for credit or clock hours
Come to MOHAI for three days of exciting, content-based exploration of themes in regional history. Sessions combine lectures from the region's top historians with hands-on training using primary materials. Course content supports social studies and professional development standards, and sets Pacific Northwest history into the broader context of U.S. history. This year will feature new topics and speakers, a preview of MOHAI's new curriculum and exhibits, and a resource fair of regional heritage organizations. The course offers multiple perspectives on the region's past covering topics that include trade, transportation changes, 20th century migration, the environmental movement, and Pacific Northwest Native American history. Each session of the Institute addresses the essential questions: How has the diversity of cultures in the Pacific Northwest shaped its history? and How can we teach multiple perspectives on the past?
The Institute is available for 2 credits or 20 clock hours from Seattle Pacific University. The main objective of this course is to provide teachers with the knowledge, and resources to strengthen social studies education in our region's K-12 classrooms. Registration deadline is Thursday, July 13, 2006.
