Keweenaw National Historical Park (Keweenaw NHP) is committed to supporting the ongoing professional development of educators. Educator workshops are an opportunity to share park resources and give educators ideas on how to incorporate them into their classroom. Keweenaw NHP hosts different workshops throughout the school year and summer.
Quincy Unit Educator Workshop - Wednesday, October 18, 2017Keweenaw NHP is excited to offer a day-long Educator Workshop at the park's Quincy Unit in October. The workshop is open to all area public, private, and home-school educators. Attendance is free and lunch will be provided. Earn 5 SCECHs (pending; no additional cost). The workshop will be rain or shine, so please make sure you dress accordingly. Register for the workshop today!
Discover how the Quincy Mine, Mill, and Smelter have changed over time with hands-on tours and demonstrations from subject matter experts from the park and the community. Collaborate with other area educators on how to incorporate Quincy's diverse resources and sites into your curriculum or plan a field trip for the future.
When is the Quincy Unit Educator Workshop?
The workshop is from 8 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 18. Educators will meet at the hoist house (not the gift shop) at the Quincy Mine. After spending the morning at the mine site, in the afternoon we will visit the Quincy Stamp Mill on Torch Lake and the Quincy Smelter in Ripley. You will need to drive to and from each of these sites.
What will we be doing at the workshop?
Activities 1, 2, and 3 will have three different session options for educators to choose from (so you will choose one session for each topic to attend). The sessions are:
Activity 1: People
Activity 2: Landscape and Geology
Activity 3: Technology
Activity 4: How to Integrate the Resources of QuincyThis will be an activity that all educators complete together in the Quincy Hoist House.
