Northern Lights Academy

Join us for our largest teacher workshop of the year, the annual Northern Lights Academy! This conference-style workshop features sessions from content experts and Northern Lights teachers. Participants will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of sessions related to sixth grade Minnesota Studies and the Northern Lights curriculum, and to network with 100+ Northern Lights educators from around the state. Print and Interactive eBook users will find this workshop equally beneficial. Sessions align with content and resources in the Revised Second Edition of Northern Lights (print book, 2013; Interactive eBook, 2014); those with earlier editions of Northern Lights will also find this workshop useful.

Lunch and parking included.

Participants will:

  • Learn and apply new knowledge of Minnesota history
  • Collaborate with Minnesota Studies colleagues to build on new ideas across schools
  • Build inquiry and primary sources into Minnesota Studies to make it more culturally relevant and place-based.

Target audience
