High School Teachers: Apply to Become an MHS Teacher Leader in HistoryIf you are a high school teacher interested in helping improve history education in your schools, districts, and regions (particularly the teaching of Montana history), we hope you'll consider applying to become a Montana Historical Society Teacher Leader in History. Learn more about the program and the application process here or email me with questions.
Crossing Disciplines WorkshopsThe winner and his or her class will be honored at a ceremony in the State Capitol on Friday, Nov. 8, Statehood Day and will receive a plaque and $4,000 toward library and classroom materials, field trips and speakers.
There's still time to join Jim Schulz for "Crossing Disciplines: Social Studies and the Common Core" in Deer Lodge (April 9), Missoula (April 10), or Dillon (April 11.) The Missoula and Dillon workshops have plenty of registrants (though there's still some room in each); we may have to cancel the Deer Lodge workshop if more people don't sign up, so don't delay.
