As custodians of Iowa's history, the Iowa Museum Association wishes to aid in educators' professional development and preparedness for teaching Iowa history in interactive and engaging ways that encourage community collaboration. In their workshop July 20-21, educators will learn and understand Iowa's role in history during the time of Westward Expansion. Educators will learn about what local, authentic artifacts are available with which to illustrate their lessons and create a unit of study in object-based learning for the classroom that aligns with the Iowa Core English Language Arts Standards for History/ Social Studies.
