|Educator team from Stillwater Area Public Schools |
participates in the 2016 Educator Institute
The Humanities Center is thrilled to once again host our week-long Educator Institute at our St. Paul facility beginning on Sunday, June 25 and running through Friday, June 30. This experience immerses participants in the Humanities Center's educational approach of increasing student engagement by focusing on absent narratives—those voices often left out or marginalized. The Institute helps develop student-teacher connections, presents practical classroom strategies, and provides valuable resources, all while building a network of Minnesota educators committed to relationship-based educational change.
Our Educator Institute provides:
- Rigorous, relevant K-12 professional development
- Access to educators and community scholars
- A field trip examining Dakota narratives in Minnesota
- Classroom materials and resources
- Year-round activities and support
- Certificate for 45+ clock hours
- All meals, plus lodging for those outside the Twin Cities metro area
The Humanities Center is pleased to offer the Educator Institute at a dramatically discounted rate of $300 per person. Funding for this $3,100 experience is made possible with generous support from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and other private sources.
