News from MSU News Service
BOZEMAN – Montana teachers can earn three Office of Public Instruction renewal units during an educational event to be held at MSU's Museum of the Rockies on Thursday, Oct. 11. The event is hosted by the Extreme History Project, the museum and the Yellowstone Writing Project.
A public talk on the history of Montana’s Warm Springs hospital will be surrounded by events designed for educators, including an overview of museum resources and a discussion of potential classroom applications. The educator event begins at 5:30 p.m. with an optional museum tour at 4:15 p.m. The cost is $35; light refreshments are included.
The Warm Springs hospital still focuses – in reduced capacity since distributed clinical care was instituted in the 1960s – on individualized recovery programs to help patients transition back into to the community. The hospital has served the state for more than 140 years and remains the only public psychiatric hospital in the state.
Teachers can register for this event through MSU Academic Technology and Outreach at ato.montana.edu/continuinged or call 406-994-6550.
