Apply Immediately for Sessions in Boise, Pocatello, Lewiston and Coeur d’Alene
The IEA is proud to support a series of four two-day workshops for K-12 teachers, Lighting Out for the Territory: Idaho History 1863-1890. Sponsored by the Idaho Humanities Council, the workshops will delve into subjects like Native American relations, the gold rush story, territorial law and politics, migration and settlement, and economic development.
“These workshops are a tremendous professional development opportunity for teachers around the state,” noted IEA president Penni Cyr. “They commemorate the state’s sesquicentennial and allow our teachers to expand their knowledge base on the key issues, stories and developments related to Idaho’s territorial history and eventual rise to statehood.”
This is the final opportunity for teachers to apply for the confirmed sessions, which are…
- June 24-25, Boise—Idaho Historical Society
- June 27-28, Pocatello—Idaho State University
- July 8-9, Lewiston—Lewis-Clark State College
- July 11-12, Coeur d’Alene—North Idaho College
Teachers selected for participation in the workshops can receive lodging, meals, texts and the opportunity to apply for one optional college credit. They will also receive a special issue of Idaho Landscapes devoted to the theme Idaho: 1863.
Several notable scholars will be leading the workshops, including Katherine Aiken (University of Idaho), Keith Peterson (Idaho State Historical Society), Laura Woodworth-Nye and Kevin Marsh (Idaho State University) and Christopher Riggs (Lewis-Clark State College).
