About this experience

Join 6th grade colleagues from across the state at the History Center on Nov. 13 for Northern Lights Academy, the premier professional conference for Minnesota Studies! Sessions will feature Minnesota Studies experts and master Northern Lights teachers from across Minnesota, as well as opportunities to explore MNHS collections and tour History Center exhibits. In addition to our usual packed agenda highlighting terrific resources, activities, and approaches, this year's NLA will also dive into the latest developments related to the 2021 revised social studies standards and plans for updating Northern Lights.

Reimbursement subsidies are available to support in-person workshop participation. Apply for funding to reimburse substitute, mileage, and hotel costs. Due to low asynchronous participation last year, we are not offering a remote option, so we want to ensure that Northern Lights teachers have the resources to attend in-person regardless of how far they live from the History Center. Learn more about subsidies and apply for this first-come, first-served resource.

Sessions align with current state social studies standards, as well as with content and resources in the Revised Second Edition of Northern Lights (print book, 2013; Interactive eBook, 2014+); those with earlier editions of Northern Lights may also find this conference useful.

✔ Light breakfast   ✔ Lunch   ✔ Exhibits Access     ✔ Collections Tour     ✔ History Center Store Voucher   ✔ CEUs   ✔ Parking
