Work, Family, and Community: Global Perspectives in Examining Population History
Summer Institute for K-16 Teachers
July 12-16, 2004
Teachers will learn how to use United States and international census data to understand vital social and economic issues. Each day we will focus on a key theme within the field of population studies, including migration, marriage, work and family, and ethnic settlement patterns. We will consider the recent scholarly literature on each topic and explore these key issues with original census data. Teachers will have the opportunity to learn through lectures, classroom discussion, and hands-on work in a computer lab and develop an original course plan for your students using the census materials. By the end of the course, participants will be able to use web-based tools for analyzing census data and apply these techniques to classroom themes.
The course is being taught by Trent Alexander, Ph.D., Research Coordinator on census projects and User Support Core Director at the Minnesota Population Center at the University of Minnesota. Participants have option to register for Professional credits. CEU's are included.
