Changing Landscapes, Changing Lives – 2010

This is a blog for Changing Landscapes, Changing Lives, a project of Wisconsin Teachers of Local Culture (WTLC) and is part of the August 2-6, 2010 Here at Home Tour for K-12 Educators.

WTLC tours immerse K-12 educators in the cultures of Wisconsin communities. The 2010 tour explores the north central region of Wisconsin. As with other tours, the places we visit are relevant to classroom teachers from across Wisconsin.

The 2010 tour theme, Changing Landscapes, Changing Lives, explores the idea that community formation is not a progression of people but an exchange among people. Over time, interactions between people, land and resources have created distinctive communities in north-central Wisconsin. Educators will experience the diverse cultures of this region directly through on-site guided tours, interaction with local residents, and community-based presentations. The itinerary includes “inside the community” experiences not usually available to tourists or independent travelers and is especially designed for the needs of teachers.

So, come to this site where we will be blogging about our experiences, our reflections and thoughts during this adventure.

    I loved following this year’s tour vicariously through your blog. This was a wonderful idea. I was just amazed that anyone had enough energy to still compose and add photos at the end of a busy day! I trust it was a meaningful and enlightening experience for all involved. Reading about the split toe moccasins and the Indian school boarding schools…..I read a book and had a class + discussion on the Indian boarding schools this summer. This was a part of history I was not aware of. Very sad time for so many.
    Keep up the fantastic work that you and your colleagues do so extremely well. Greetings to Ruth and anyone else who may have been on the Milwaukee tour 2 years ago.

  2. I wish to show some thanks to you just for bailing me out of this crisis.

    After looking through the the net and coming across basics that were not productive, I assumed my life was gone.
    Existing devoid of the strategies to the difficulties you have
    solved as a result of your write-up is a critical case, as well
    as the kind that might have adversely affected my entire career if I
    hadn’t noticed your blog. Your main natural talent and kindness in dealing with all the pieces was priceless. I don’t
    know what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a subject like this. I can now look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for the impressive and effective help. I won’t
    be reluctant to refer your web site to any individual who needs counselling
    on this area.
