"The CCSS & IEFA" Open Institute:
To honor MCA 20-1-501 and to address teachers’ concern about how to make adjustments given the shifting paradigms required by the MCCS, the MWP Open Institute: Common Core State Standards proposes to provide teachers in all content areas with strategies for understanding the CCSS and for moving standards to embrace Indian Education for All (IEFA) curriculum. Careful reading and thoughtful interpretation of the CCSS will avoid predictable misunderstandings, and building curriculum from worthy tasks like those afforded by Indian Education for All offers the pathway to performance envisioned by the Common Core. This course will offer 3 graduate credits through the University of Montana.

Worlds Apart but Not Strangers:
The Montana Writing Project will host this 1-week program in the new Payne Family Native American Center on the University of Montana's campus. The Holocaust Memorial Library covers the costs of this institute, so participants only need to pay the $135 credit recording fee if they register for the 3 graduate credits.
