Place-Based Education In The New Curriculum

This session is an interactive discussion about the role of experiential and place-based learning in the renewed curriculum, including a connection to the First Peoples' Principles of Learning. The session will look at what teachers and districts across the province are doing to support integrating environmental/experiential/place-based learning into their practice. It will also explore the rich resources in Green Teacher magazine, a collection of great kid-tested ideas for fostering learning and inspiring action on environmental and other global issues, written by and for educators. Each teacher will leave with a copy of the magazine to use in their classroom.
