Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers to explore the role of Minnesota's Iron Range in American history.

Minnesota's Iron Range supplied late 19th and 20th century America with the iron needed to fuel industrialization, economic expansion, and military might. During the summer of 2010, the Minnesota Humanities Center will offer two week-long, residence-based workshops that use this unique region of Minnesota to address themes and issues central to American history. A National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for School Teachers program, these workshops will help K-12 educators increase their knowledge and appreciation of Minnesota's Iron Range, a region significant to American history and culture, but often overlooked. The workshops will provide teachers with training and experience in the use and interpretation of this historic landmark region, and make available the material resources and archival evidence unique to this significant place in American history and culture.
