Guests in the Classroom
Living Histories Resource People:
Are you interested in inviting in a guest to your classroom to present on a specific topic? Would you like an artist (any media) come to do a workshop with students? In 2013, Living Sky School Division began creating a directory of resource people who are interested in working with and visiting our schools. The list is ever growing and we hope it helps schools make contact with skilled resource people. You may be able to receive some funding through LSKY's Living Histories program through shared cost of:
- Honorarium $250 (usually)
- protocols as needed

Students make matchboxes while in a workshop with Jeannie Corrigal as she toured a film called "Jim Settee: The Way Home".
Filmmaker, Marcel Petit, works with high school students and interview Hip Hop artist, Brad Bellegarde by Skype. The project was called "Danger of a Single Story".
