Education Summit Held At Homestead

Homestead National Monument of America

National Park News

Helping students to use real data, creating natural resource traveling trunks and sponsoring a film festival were all ideas generated at the July 30th education summit at Homestead National Monument of America.

The summit was organized to gather input from educational professionals across Nebraska to use in the park’s five-year education plan. Participants included staff from the Nebraska State Department of Education, curriculum directors from Omaha, Lincoln and Beatrice, technology coordinators from the Educational Service Units and several classroom teachers.

Other ideas included having writing workshops which tie to the style of writing done on state tests, increasing the use of partnerships, and allowing students to use technology to publish electronic books after visiting.
