Last December we hosted our follow-up meeting for OLCG teachers. This
one was held in Fairbanks on December 6-7, 2003 and the focus was snow
and ice. We had enthusiastic teacher participants and several wonderful
guest speakers including Jacqueline D'Auria, Samue S. l Demientieff,
Martin Jeffries, Martha Stackhouse and Matthew Sturm. The Power Point
slide shows presented by
Sam and Matthew are
already on-line, and plans are in the works for Juke-boxing narrations
for Sam, Matt and Martha. We also compiled a snow activities book which
we mailed out, and we posted some
new activities on our website. Check out
photo photo highlights!
OLCG is dedicated to helping its teachers and classrooms connect with
local experts and Elders, and will provide honorariums to speakers in
order to promote this connection. To arrange for an Elder honorarium,
we need advance notice of their visit as well as their name address
and social security number. Contact Martha
Kopplin to set this up.
The OLCG program recognizes both the developmental nature of teacher
