Increasing Historical Empathy through Living History: Mountain Men and the Fur Trade

The National Park Service (NPS) defines living history as “a general term encompassing a variety of interpretive techniques in which the interpreter uses period reproduction clothing and objects to interpret and present impressions of the people, events, and practices of the past.” This presentation will use a living history approach to give students an opportunity to learn experientially (hands-on) about mountain men and the fur trade through its unique and intriguing material culture in an effort to help them understand the past. Students will be able to handle period correct clothing, trade goods, and accoutrements, while learning about the significance of the fur trade in United States history.

Getting Your Students to Own Their Education
Presented by Adam Hailstone
Do you or your students ever struggle with motivation to get it all done? Do you or your students need more initiative? In this presentation, Adam Hailstone will explore the sub-conscious drives that decrease our motivation and stifle our initiative.
We humans have a tendency to project our drives on to others and then blame them for our shortcomings. Adam will train you on a simple process of taking ownership of your drives and how to help your students do the same. The result: while also learning to help yourself, you will learn to help your students own their education and live their lives on purpose.
