We will warm up with some activities and discussions in the classroom, and then we will head out into the local parks to spend most of the day practicing our skills. This class will emphasize hands-on learning; there won’t be much reading or homework. I know we’re all very tired at this time of year, so I want this to feel like summer camp for teachers.  Teachers who are taking the class for graduate credit will complete a very open-ended project due 3 weeks after class where they will create a plan for how they could use nature journaling in their educational settings.
