Place-Based Education Workshop 

August 12 - 16, 2019. Lake Placid, NY 

Open to adults in the field of education. 

Program brought to you by The Teacher Learning Center (TLC) at Teton Science Schools. Hosted at the Eileen Rockefeller House (RockE House). Round Lake Campus is an extension of North Country School and Camp Treetops.


 

How does the place where you teach influence your curriculum? What tools can be used to connect students to place? Participants in the workshop will explore these topics while hiking in Adirondack Park, engaging in inquiry and design experiences, and planning place-based lessons and educational experiences for their students. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the theory and implementation of place-based education through lectures, discussions, readings and activities. Central to the program is the Teton Science Schools’ framework for place-based education with three core competencies that we believe are essential to support high levels of student learning: community leadership, educational approach, and intentional culture. The 6 principles of the place-based educational approach will be discussed and modeled during the training.

Participants will actively engage in reflection to make meaningful connections to their teaching practice. This workshop is designed to re-invigorate participants with fresh ideas for integrating and implementing place-based education in the curriculum, classroom, schoolyard, and local community and environment.

College Credit Available. Participants will be eligible for 2 credits from the University of Wyoming for participation in the program and completing the follow-up, at a cost of $150 per 2 credit hours.
