Climate-Focused Professional Learning Series

Virtual Professional Learning Series

SIGN UP TODAY for Natural Curiosity and Green Teacher's Climate-Focused Professional Learning Series. This new professional learning offering is for educators and Indigenous youth who wish to deepen their own inquiry into the ecology of natural curiosity. 

 

We aim to grow a learning environment where educators and students experience themselves in relationship with the Land and each other in community — and how this pedagogical approach can be applied to climate change education.

 

Educators will explore the four-branch framework of environmental inquiry and the associated Indigenous lenses, that present tangible entry points towards a reciprocal relationship with the Land participating as a co-teacher.

Free Self-Guided Learning Program

Over the summer, Natural Curiosity engaged our key authors and leading practitioners to develop a new, freely accessible professional learning program in support of environmental and Indigenous education across Turtle Island for all.

 

This 5-part instructional video series that provides an introductory exploration of Natural Curiosity’s four-branch environmental inquiry framework, deepened by Indigenous perspectives.

This September's edition of Making the Shift is dedicated to recognizing National Day for Truth & Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day on September 30th. Orange Shirt Day opens the door to important conversations about the residential school system, its ongoing legacy of intergenerational trauma, and the stories and resilience of survivors. For educators, it is an opportunity to engage in meaningful discussion and co-learning with students about Phyllis Webstad's story, and renew our shared responsibilities toward Truth and Reconciliation.

 

Check out the newsletter for teacher education opportunities and classroom resources for learning about the ongoing impacts of residential schools, as well as the roles that we all hold in the path toward Truth and Reconciliation.

 

Doug Anderson and Julie Comay (authors of NC2!) had a lovely conversation on Earthy Chats hosted by our friends at Green Teacher Magazine, The Outdoor Learning Store, CBEENetwork, and Stoked on Science about exploring environmental inquiry with an Indigenous perspective.
