Occupational culture contributes to sense of place, history, and aesthetics. This 6-hour interactive, hands-on workshop offers educators of all grade levels an opportunity to visit and practice documentation of vital local occupations and to connect their experiences to the classroom. Facilitators include folklorists and local traditional artists. Through ethnographic tools such as observation, note taking, interviewing, sketching, and photography, participants will hone cultural research inquiry skills that students can apply across curricula to deepen knowledge of themselves, their region, their history. Expect a day of discovery, collaboration, and rejuvenation.
The workshop will include 6 CTLE hours of learning with instructors. All educators are welcome to register. Lunch will be provided.
