| March 18, 2013

NEWARK – Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) was awarded a grant from the Ohio Humanities Council to host a summer teachers’ Institute in conjunction with Ohio Chautauqua. The college is thrilled to offer this unique learning experience to central Ohio K-12 teachers focused on Ohio Chautauqua’s theme, “When Ohio Was the Western Frontier.”The Institute will run from Tuesday through Saturday, July 23-27, at COTC’s Montgomery Hall located in historic Roscoe Village.

Teachers will experience history come to life during the five-day program featuring topics ranging from women in Ohio during the Frontier Era, historic Indians of Ohio and the significance of Ohio in the expansion of the United States. Partnering with Ohio Chautauqua, teachers will participate in workshops and attend evening tent performances of trained scholars who will assume the costume and character of chosen historical figures including Johnny Appleseed, Chief John Logan and Margaret Blennerhassett.

Designed for elementary, middle and high school teachers, the Institute is another wonderful example of the partnership between COTC and Muskingum University as teachers have the opportunity to earn graduate credit for their participation. Applications are being accepted through Tuesday, April 30. Contact Teri Holder at COTC, 740-755-7722 or [email protected].
