Attention K-12 Educators! This summer the Montana Historical Society will host a National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for Schoolteachers.
Join us in the Treasure State for in-depth, intensive exploration and study. We will examine the mining history of the American West and its relevance to today’s classroom. Two sessions will be offered--July 11-16 and July 18-23. Each week, 40 educators from across the country will join with university professors and public historians to investigate the cultural legacies and rich historical resources of Virginia/Nevada Cities, Butte, and Helena, Montana. Faculty members include Dr. Paula Petrik (George Mason University); Dr. Ellen Baumler (Montana Historical Society); Dr. Mary Murphy (Montana State University); and Dr. Robert Swartout (Carroll College).
Application deadline March 1, 2011. Visit website for complete details.
