Prairie Public Education Services is currently planning for the June 21 – 22, 2016 Institute. Some exciting new developments are taking shape, including the selection of a new theme: Creative Tech for Teaching. The Institute will also be held at a new venue this coming summer – the Minnesota State University in Moorhead (MSUM).As in previous years, the Institute will have Master Teachers from North Dakota and Minnesota leading breakout sessions on curriculum planning and classroom technology use.
The Institute will also continue to feature the elective creation of lesson plans. Participating PreK–12 teachers may submit their lesson plan to be added to our collection, which is accessible via our website for ongoing use in classrooms. If approved, a stipend will be paid to the teacher. Graduate credit for attending the Institute will also be available.

We are looking forward to sharing more plans as they become available, so stop by again soon to check for more updates!
