Event: Kentuck Knob Teacher Training Session

This summer I hosted teachers from all over the state of Pennsylvania for the Educational Outreach Program I created at Frank Lloyd Wright's House on Kentuck Knob. Among them was my good friend Valerie Cortis, with whom I taught on the same floor at Uniontown Area High School for seven years.

During the six-hour training days, I gave teachers an in-depth, private tour of the Hagan House and the Sculpture Meadow, then they created lesson plans to take back to their classrooms based on the touring experience and our discussions. And, best of all, each participant received 6 free PDE-Approved ACT 48 Continuing Education Hours.

It was so successful, we are going to expand the 2010 teacher training dates. You can find more information about it on the Educational Events Page of the Official Kentuck Knob Website or the Kentuck Knob Blog.
