Folklife Professional Development for K-12 Wisconsin Teachers

Ruth Olson, I and colleagues are announcing the next annual WTLC offering, our 10th anniversary of yearly folklife professional development for K-12 Wisconsin teachers. Most of those years, like this one coming up, have been a week’s cultural tour of a region within Wisconsin. Lots of work to make these happen but really worth it for the impact they have on teachers.

Wisconsin Teachers of Local Culture invites you to be a part of WTLC’s 2016
Changing Landscapes, Changing Lives

* Learn ways to study local culture you can use with your students.

* Get practice using a free photo-mapping tool you can use with your students.

* Become part of the WTLC statewide network of locally-focused educators

This four-day cultural tour will begin and end in Eau Claire, and explore cultural communities throughout north-central Wisconsin.
