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.
