Nature Journal Educator’s Forum: The Pretty Picture
What do we mean when we say “it’s not about the pretty pictures”? What IS the pretty picture anyway?
Lean into this discussion about the pretty picture: how do we define it? Is there room for it in nature journaling, and if so, how? When working with students and telling them that “it’s not about the pretty picture”, are there times when we as educators accidentally slip into rewarding the pretty pictures over other nature journal work without meaning to?
Learn how to teach Nature Journaling! Join our weekly discussion and idea-sharing for teachers, home-school parents, and other educators interested in teaching nature journaling skills. Each meeting will have a theme. Most of the conversation that day will revolve around this core idea but expect interesting side routes and trails.
All ages and experience levels are welcome. No registration is necessary. If you are new to Zoom or are having trouble with the meeting controls, please see these notes and suggestions on Zoom Tips for Online Classes with John Muir Laws to help you get more out of the online workshop. When possible I will also make a recording of the workshop and post it on my blog. I look forward to seeing you there!
NOTE: Start time is 12 PM Pacific, 1 PM Mountain, 2 PM Central, 3 PM Eastern Time
