This training will provide in-depth presentation and discussion on American Indian Studies in Wisconsin (often referenced as Wisconsin Act 31). The focus of the training is to help educators understand and implement Wisconsin Act 31, which is a state law requiring all public school districts and pre-service teacher programs to provide instruction on the history, culture, and tribal sovereignty of the eleven federally-recognized American Indian nations in the state of Wisconsin.
This training is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and information they need to integrate the requirements of American Indian Studies into lesson plans, material selections, pedagogical practices, and district curriculum. Information about the Wisconsin American Indian nations' histories, treaty rights, sovereignty, and cultures will be presented throughout the training.
As a result of participating in this training, participants will:
- Have an opportunity to share best practices, information, model programs, and resources with administrators and teachers.
- Increase knowledge about American Indian Studies in Wisconsin.
- Meet the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction's licensing stipulations regarding American Indian Studies and Wisconsin Act 31 requirements for educators trained outside of Wisconsin.
***Please note this training workshop will meet the licensure stipulation if the training workshop is completed along with completing two follow-up assignments. These assignments will be discussed in detail at the completion of the training workshop.
