Day in the Life

In Spring 2022 the Malcolm Wallop Civic Engagement Team launched a new feature of its K-12 Curriculum Project, our “Day in the Life” series. We asked a wide range of Wyoming community members, from different professions, to create a short "Day in the Life" video, featuring their daily work life and highlighting what makes their job meaningful for them. This content is shared in the Wallop virtual curriculum catalog, which we provide free to Wyoming K-12 social studies teachers and students on the University of Wyoming's WyoLearn website (link). These “Day in the Life” videos supplement the Wallop K-12 Curriculum Project directly by providing students with examples of people from a variety of professions available through study of social studies and beyond.
