This central Wisconsin district plans to provide professional development to 90 teachers in two cohorts. The partners are the University of Wisconsin-Marathon County; the Hmong Mutual Association, and the Marathon County Historical Society. The effort will be to integrate an intensive content presentation with learning strategies. These learning strategies will enable teachers to more effectively meet state standards and to put forth a deep and interesting history program that will succeed in engaging students' interest and energies.
