Teacher Professional Development:  Teaching Kentucky History with special presenters James and Freda Klotter

Tuesday, June 7, 2016 / 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The Frazier History Museum is pleased to host the Kentucky Council for the Social Studies as they offer a teacher professional development focused on teaching Kentucky history.  James and Freda Klotter will spend the morning presenting on meaningful ways to utilize their book “Faces of Kentucky” in the classroom. 

Written by native Kentuckians for Kentuckians, Faces of Kentucky is the product of a collaboration between James Klotter, the state historian of Kentucky, and Freda Klotter, an award-winning teacher.  It approaches learning as a voyage of discovery and includes numerous illustrations, thought-provoking questions, and historical mysteries to be solved.

After the morning session, participants will view important artifacts from Kentucky history in the Frazier Museum’s permanent collection and learn about Kentucky’s connection to the Lewis and Clark expedition in the interactive, temporary exhibit the Lewis and Clark Experience exhibit.  Teachers will also enjoy a live performance of John Floyd – Kentucky Surveyor by one of the Frazier Museum’s talented actors. 

Cost: $30 (includes a copy of the “Faces of Kentucky” and “History Mysteries” books, as well as access to all Frazier Museum exhibits)

Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required: to make a reservation click here. Have questions? Call Glenn Manns at (502) 803-0753.
