The Inquiry in the Upper Midwest (IUM) project is funded through the Library of Congress' Teaching with Primary Sources program. The IUM project will deliver primary-source based curriculum resources and professional development for teachers in Minnesota and Wisconsin, with a particular focus on inquiry, primary sources, and culturally relevant pedagogy.
Incorporating authentic inquiry practices into your study of primary sources is a fantastic way to assist your students in meeting the new Wisconsin Social Studies standards. Wisconsin workshops will provide instruction on how the new Wisconsin standards and primary sources are an excellent match for your classroom.
Each Wisconsin registrant will receive a $100 stipend for attending a regional workshop. Lunch and snacks will also be provided. A non-refundable $25 registration fee is required.
With six workshops across the state, professional educators from the Wisconsin Historical Society, the Wisconsin Geographic Alliance, and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction look forward to having you join us for this unique paid professional development opportunity.
