Among the many workshops offered this summer by the Golden Triangle Cooperative, this one caught my eye:
"In Our Own Words—Native American Story through Reading, Writing, and Media Literacies," led by Dottie Susag
This workshop will feature newly revised OPI Indian Literature Units to include relevant MCCS standards. These are texts by Native Americans writing from their storied cultural, geographical, historical, and literary contexts. The workshop will model MCCS aligned critical reading, writing, and media strategies with relevant informational texts, as well as several ready-to-go model lessons. Participants will receive complimentary units and a collection of Montana Indian poetry.
