How to Lead Nature Journaling Activities for Teachers and Group Leaders (Oakland)
February 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Are you a school teacher who would like to lead nature journal activities in your classroom? Perhaps you are a home school parent who would like to extend and enrich your current journaling activities. Are you interested in starting (or are already leading) a nature journal club in your area? Or, you could be a nature journaler with no interest in teaching but would like to understand the psychological research behind what you do to better understand and inspire yourself.
In this workshop we explore the pedagogy and logistics of leading nature journaling activities and bringing students outdoors. You will learn:
- how to lead journaling activities
- my biggest mistakes and what doesn’t work
- how to integrate nature journaling with the Common Core standards and the Next Generation Science Standards.
- techniques to give authentic feedback on student work that inspire and motivate
- a review of relevant education and cognitive psychology reasearch
Before the workshop, you may want to download and read the free nature journaling curriculum Opening the World Through Nature Journaling. Work is currently underway to create a new edition of this curriculum. If you are a teacher or home school parent who would like to help us test the new activities, please join our beta test team. f you would like participate, please send an email to email@example.com, with the subject “field test.” You will be added to an email list where we will send drafts and survey questions for review.
