Free Teachers' Workshop
OSU’s Center for Oklahoma Studies is sponsoring a free workshop for teachers on Saturday, November 3. The members of The 198 String Band will present a half-day course designed to provide teachers with ideas for discussing history and other topics through music and photographs. They will discuss particular songs, photographs, images, and lyrics and will explore the background for these materials and how they developed as folk music within the broader culture of the time and place. By focusing on a range of topics from social conditions to cultural patterns to political responses, they will work with teachers to explore how particular songs, images, and sources can be leveraged in the classroom to help students and others link history to contemporary issues and community concerns. A certificate of completion will be available for all participants upon request. While the workshop is free, teachers must pre-register by contacting Mary Larson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405-744-6588.
