The Champlain Colloquium is a forum for academics and high school teachers to discuss research on the life and times of Samuel de Champlain, with a special emphasis on how themes from the 17th century are still relevant today. A primary goal of the Champlain Colloquium is to help teachers actively engage their students in lines of inquiry and field trips that bring alive the influence and legacy of Champlain’s arrival on the North American continent.
*A workshop conducted in French, targeted particularly to French teachers at the middle and high school levels, will explore how excerpts of Samuel de Champlain’s writings (primary sources in French) can be used in and beyond the classroom to study language and culture lessons with students.
Tuition: $115 (Note: LCMM can offer partial scholarships and travel stipends to a limited number of participants, based on need, thanks to a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council. Contact us if you are interested in applying for some amount of reimbursement.
