Join us for a professional development opportunity for teachers of grades 5 –12 at the National Cowboy Museum in collaboration with the College of Education and Professional Studies, University of Central Oklahoma. Best known for her Migrant Mother photograph, Dorothea Lange’s body of work touched on provocative social and political issues throughout her career, including Japanese internment, racial segregation and Civil Rights. This workshop focuses on Lange’s social and political activism in the 20th century as seen through her lens.
Participants engage with content experts, including Dr. David Wrobel of the University of Oklahoma, and leave with practical teaching strategies.
Participating teachers receive:
- Reimbursement for one paid substitute while attending the workshop
- $125 bus transportation subsidy paid to their district and free admission for students and chaperone (1 per 7 students) for a field trip
- 20% teacher discount on one item purchased during the workshop at The Museum Store
