This year’s Training Institute was enriched by the participation of teams from three school districts in Washington State: Mount Adams, Wapato and Yakima.

Participants engaged in a wide variety of learning activities, including demonstrations and role plays, group discussions, storytelling, art, music, poetry and personal reflection, as well as time for socializing and food. They not only read about best practices and instructional methods, but experienced them as well. Daily guest speakers served to personalize the training content by sharing stories about their own lives. On the final day, each team began work on a Diversity Action Plan for their district or school.
