Teachers' Domain
Series Description

Teachers' Domain is committed to providing teachers with a variety of professional development opportunities which are rigorous, inquiry-driven, and rooted in innovative classroom practices. Teachers’ Domain currently offers facilitated online courses, which can be customized and licensed by schools, districts, or states.

Program Description

Launched 2007 The ECHO Special Collection provides rich, multi-disciplinary educational resources in science, literacy and language arts, fine art, and social studies. The combined skills, experience, and collections of our six institutions provide life-enhancing educational opportunities in and out of the classroom, strengthening knowledge of local culture and identity.

Learning From The People: Education through Art, Culture and History is a Teachers’ Domain Special Collection that uses place-based knowledge and experience, primary source research skills, and traditional narratives—both visual and oral—as models of language arts, fine arts, social studies, and science education correlated to the state and federal educational curriculum frameworks. A web-based collection of videos and interactive visual lessons supported by background texts and lesson plans, Teachers’ Domain’s ECHO collection presents two general thematic lines: the ecological effects of climate change on the animals and people of the Arctic, and the use of narrative and story to teach language arts and literacy.

Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations (ECHO) is a major, federally funded educational and cultural enrichment initiative, annually serving hundreds of thousands of children and adult continuing learners in Alaska, Hawai`i, and Massachusetts.
