Join us for a professional development opportunity for teachers (best suited for grades 6 –12) at the National Cowboy Museum in collaboration with the College of Education and Professional Studies, University of Central Oklahoma. This educator workshop focuses on the untold stories of women in the West as featured in This Land Is Herland: Gendered Activism in Oklahoma from the 1870s to the 2010s. Hear from co-editors Sarah Eppler Janda and Patricia Loughlin as well as authors featured in the book. Learn about Western women who faced challenges but persisted, nonetheless.
Participants will also engage with content experts, including Michael Grauer, McCasland Chair of Cowboy Culture and Curator of Cowboy Collections and Western Art and Dr. Kim Pennington, Associate Professor and Chair, Educational Sciences, Foundations and Research, College of Education and Professional Studies University of Central Oklahoma, and leave with practical teaching strategies.
