Description: During this 2-day workshop, participants will be introduced to wilderness topics; experience key components of Wilderness Investigations—a new set of information, learning activities, and resources for teachers who want to expose their students to wilderness topics; be exposed ways to expand classroom boundaries to include local places with wild elements, and experience an integrated approach to place-based teaching using wilderness as the organizing concept. School year workshop hours are typically Fridays 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.; Summer workshops are 2 full days (8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.). Credit (university and/or state teaching credits) may be available for each workshop. Wilderness Investigations is correlated with National and State Standards (for 5th – 8th grades) and Indian Education for All Essential Understandings, but is easily adaptable for most grades.
Enrollment: Sponsors include the Sheridan College Learn Outdoors and Bighorn National Forest. To register contact Julie Davidson, 307-674-6446.
