Treaty Ed. Workshop
The week of Jan. 6th, 2015, denoted the start of my preinternship semester, beginning with a two-day Treaty Education workshop hosted by the Office of the Treaty Commissioner. The first day of the workshop was focused upon the history of treaty making. We began the day with an “Ice Breaker” true-or-false activity about historical treaty facts, establishing a brief understanding of treaty education. The questions acted as a platform for the day as we built our knowledge off of what we discussed. That activity was followed by a game of Treaty Jeopardy where we were divided up into 6 large groups and worked together as a team to solve the questions
I really liked how the workshop leader used these two activities together to engage us as learners. I could see myself adapting these activities to teach treaty education, as the students are tested on and expand their previous knowledge. The Office of The Treaty Commissioner has a resource page with a variety of Treaty Ed. PowerPoint activities, including the activities discussed above.
