Workshop set for teachers, interpretersSeptember 23, 2019
Two weeks are left to register for the Indiana Historic Pathways workshop on the Buffalo Trace designed for teachers, interpreters, and other educators.
The workshop, a look at the history of the buffalo trace that crosses southern Indiana, will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at the Dubois County Museum, 2704 N. Newton St., Jasper.
Several speakers are scheduled as a well as a focus on the educational boxes developed by the Buffalo Trace Task Force and the interactive activities that went with them.
The educational boxes, which contain 15 interactive activities and 19 hand-on items related to the historic Buffalo Trace, were delivered to every public school in the eight counties along the Trace with fourth grade classes two years ago. In addition, libraries or museums in each county were given a box to have on loan to other entities such as homeschools, parochial schools, parks, or camps that might want to use the boxes and curriculum.
The workshop fee is $10 and includes lunch, handouts and take-home items.
