Letters from Anne
The Norskedalen Letters from Anne curriculum is an interdisciplinary look at life in the 1860s, as told through the letters of Anne Engum. Anne is a real-life teenage immigrant to the Coon Valley region of Wisconsin. Through her letters, students learn the themes of conservation and push/pull factors. Norskedalen has developed lessons that can be used or adapted for grades 3-8, with a related lesson in all of the core subjects. Lessons in each subject were drawn from both Wisconsin and national academic standards, and developed by the educational staff at Norskedalen alongside current public school educators.
