Teacher workshop

Thank you to our teachers who participated in the 2011 summer workshops. Check back as workshops for 2012 will be announced soon.

Teacher Workshops
The park offers educators from Kindergarten through High School an opportunity to learn more about Carl Sandburg and the National Park Service through curriculum-based resources. These resources help you prepare your class for a visit or to find resources to bring Sandburg into the classroom if you are unable to visit. These workshops are offered in the summer.

2013 workshops will be offered on July 29 and 30. You may download an application here.

In-Service Learning
The park's Education Program Coordinator would be happy to work with you to present a workshop during your in-service learning at your school or other location. Contact the Education Coordnator for more details.

Carl Sandburg collected American folk songs from the time he was 19 years old. He published a book entitled "The American Songbag" from this collection and even learned a few chords on the guitar. He would entertain audiences after poetry recitals with his unique renditions of these songs.
