Our Language in 50 Years

Join Brightways Learning’s Lisa Kerscher along with Susan Paskvan and Gina Hrinko from Alaska’s Yukon-Koyukuk School District as they explore the question “Where will your language be in 50 years?” On Thursday, October 10th from 10:30-11:45 a.m., Y-KSD, a rural school district in Interior Alaska, and Brightways will discuss how they are revitalizing two languages via distance education. Through an Office of Indian Education grant, Y-KSD was able to develop a curriculum that includes on-site classes, distance education classes, and online resources for students and parents. Participants will learn how the language revitalization plan shaped the development of a workbook and teaching. Learn more about the convention>>
