Prairie Region Teacher Training Institute
“Integration of History, Culture, Science and the Arts.”
June 24 and 25, 2014
About the Institute
Teaching with technology interactively is the key to the Prairie Region Teacher Training Institute. At the institute, teachers learn research-based instructional strategies for using video and web-based media in the classroom. This media is used to support the integration of regional arts, history and/or culture across the curriculum.
Master Teachers from Minnesota and North Dakota lead several breakout sessions where they model lessons incorporating video resources, prime time programming, digital video, and/or the internet to explain, motivate, reinforce, and reach students who are learning new concepts or material. After viewing model lessons, attendees engage in a facilitated reflective discussion. The discussion protocol will guide the reflective discussion of the attendees.
For Science Educators: Model lessons and general sessions from the Prairie Energy and Carbon Teacher Training Institute has been added to the 2014 institute. This will benefit K-12 science educators.
Meals and snacks are provided at the institute. Door prizes are given away at the end of the institute. All attendees receive jump drives with copies of the hand-outs, lesson plans, Power Points, and other resources. On-site parking is free for registered attendees, and campus housing options are available.
This two-day institute is at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, on June 24 and 25, 2014. The institute is for PreK-12 teachers from North Dakota and Minnesota. Teachers must pre-register for the institute. There is a $25 fee for registration. Participation is limited to 100 teachers.
Participants need to attend the full institute to receive Continuing Education Units or Graduate Credit (available from NDSU and UND). For graduate credit attendees will be required to write a lesson plan using the resources from the institute integrating regional arts, history and/or culture into their classroom curriculum. This lesson plan is optional for attendees who are not getting graduate credit. Lessons must include the use of a media-rich video that supports the objective of the lesson as well as appropriate instructional strategies. Once the submitted lesson is approved, the teacher will receive a $100 stipend. Prairie Public, as part of an on-going collaboration process, will post the lesson in a web-based repository for ND and MN teachers to access for their classrooms.
