New website helps educators teach about American Indian nations

A new website, WisconsinAct31.org, is helping educators throughout the state teach students from kindergarten through high school about Wisconsin’s American Indian nations. This project was led by the School of Education’s Aaron Bird Bear and Simone Schweber -- with significant help from partners across the state. Wisconsin Act 31 is the term for the five state statutes that require schools to teach American Indian Studies throughout a student's career and maintain instructional materials that appropriately reflect diverse cultures.

UW-Madison’s Paula White will be having an upcoming show, Dec. 8 to Jan. 22, in the School of Education Gallery. The theme of this show is, “Cuba Today: Caminando Por La Calle.” Through her photography, White shows life in Cuba today – what you would see and hear as you walk through the streets of Havana and beyond. White is the project manager for the Study of Iowa High Schools – a research project within the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER), where she has worked for nearly 30 years. She also is an alumna of the School of Education, having earned a Ph.D. from the Department of Educational Policy Studies.
