The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum has become one of the region’s premier project-based professional development sites for teachers. Teachers tell us they love LCMM’s access to Lake Champlain and nearby tributaries, our interdisciplinary staff – a group of seasoned historians, ecologists and archaeologists – and our rich, inquiry-based content.
We are currently launching an innovative and adventurous series of professional development courses in partnership with Castleton University. These teacher-trainings combine our highly tactile and stimulating environment with a teaching paradigm – called the “Inductive Tower” – that honors students’ innate abilities to observe, query, and learn on their own terms.
We are very pleased to be unfurling several exciting Professional Development opportunities this summer and fall, featuring visiting faculty member Dr. Harry Chaucer (teaching Artifacts & Institutes) and our stellar Maritime Research Institute team of instructors Chris Sabick, Jennifer Craig and Allyson Ropp (teaching Archaeo-Teach and Nautical Archaeology Field School).
