Enrichment: State Statutory Requirements

For educators who have completed their licensure programs out of state, the Enrichment Program provides opportunities to meet several PI 34 statutory requirements.

Please contact Lynn Dahl at 262-551-5924 if you are interested in making arrangements to satisfy state statutory requirements in any of the following areas:

Conflict Resolution — 1 graduate credit

Participants will read a series of online resources. After reading the materials, participants will meet with a professor to discuss the readings and implementation possibilities in their professional lives.

Wisconsin Native American — 1 graduate credit

Participants will read Wisconsin: A History by Robert C. Nesbit and other supplemental materials. After reading the materials, participants will meet with the professor to discuss integrating the knowledge they acquired into their teaching.

Environmental Education — 1 graduate credit

Participants will be connected with online training modules and resources to build their background knowledge for designing environmental learning experiences, as well as require students to review environmental projects and resources in Wisconsin. Participants will work with the professor to complete course requirements.

Women’s History (Human Relations) — 1 graduate credit

Candidates will complete a series of online readings. They will meet with the professor to plan and conduct an oral history study of women they know, and then create a display (i.e., webpage, collage, timeline, etc.) linking the facts in the resources to the women they interviewed.

Racism and Stereotypes (Human Relations) — 1 graduate credit

Students will begin by reading the online discussion book The Color of Water by James McBride. Candidates will go on to complete a web-based exploration of race relations in their own communities using census data, newspaper archives, and other local resources. The final product will be a paper, webpage, or other compilation of information on the topic.

Culturally Relevant Teaching (Human Relations) — 1 graduate credit

Students will begin with the reading and the online discussion of the book Educating Esme by Esme Raji Codell, as well as several online research sources. Candidates will then create a series of five culturally relevant lesson plans based on populations they are likely to encounter in their future teaching.
