“This year's Chautauqua will focus on the Civil War, and William Seward, Clarissa Harlowe Barton, Major Martin Delany, Robert Edward Lee and Stonewall Jackson will take center-stage,” Ging remarked.
“During the Teachers' Institute, participants will be introduced to a multitude of effective teaching strategies that will not only aid them in teaching the Civil War, but will work to enrich students' overall classroom experience. Also, we will be touring local Enid landmarks, such as Leonardo’s and the Midgley Museum. The Institute's cost is $80.00, and that price includes fifteen fabulous meals and transportation from NOC-Enid to all the events. Dorms will be available for $20 per night if you need lodging accommodations,” Ging said.
“If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at 580.478.5174 or DeLisa.Ging@north-ok.edu. Cool ‘LEARNING UNDER THE BIG TOP’ T-shirts will be available for $12 if you are in need of some inexpensive apparel,” she said.
