|Attention K-12 Grade Teachers:
Northwest Indiana provides an interesting classroom for discovering how economic development and environmental sustainability intersect. In addition, the history of the region provides rich stories of transition, both cultural and economic. This four day workshop provides K-12 teachers with content skills and tools for teaching about the diversity of cultural, historic, economic, and environmental fabric of their own regions of Indiana. Teachers will leave with means they may use to create a similar experience for their own students.
