This experiential and lecture based workshop for K - 12 teachers is facilitated by Running Grass, Founder and Executive Director of Three Circles Center for Multicultural Environmental Education with the support of NatureBridge educators. A short survey and reading/writing assignment prior to the workshop will be assigned to prepare participants for the experience. During the workshop participants will
- Explore personal racial and cultural histories that shape their interactions with students.
- Learn about a framework and resources that lend insight into the rich environmental histories and perspectives embedded in the backgrounds of their students and how they can be applied in environmental learning.
- Examine curricula and observe teaching strategies that support all students in the outdoor classroom.
More instructional time will be indoors than outdoors.
