About the Institute

Institute Agenda

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, science, 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.

Meals and snacks are provided at 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.

MISSION US
Mission US is a multimedia project that immerses players in U.S. history content through free interactive games. Students go one three ‘missions’ where they become a teen-ager living during an important historical event. They make decisions based on information as they travel through the events of that time in history. The missions take place in Boston during the 1770’s, in Kentucky and Ohio following the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 and in the Cheyenne country of the Great Plains during the Westward Expansion. Visit http://www.mission-us.org/ to learn more about this online educational interactive. Mission Us is produced by WNET of New York.

Participants need to attend the full institute to receive Continuing Education Units or Professional 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, science, 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.
