PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR EDUCATORS

SCHOOL GROUPS

Round Lake Campus offers programs for schoolchildren and college students throughout the year.  Residential field trips and workshops include: sustainability, teambuilding, wilderness, farm stays, and English as a second language programs.

​In each of our schools programs, we offer a variety of experiences designed to connect participants to the natural world, embrace diversity in all its forms, encourage creativity and self-expression, and nurture community through shared and meaningful work.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR EDUCATORS

Rock-E House & Basecamp offers professional development opportunities for teachers, educators, and caregivers.  We welcome you to join a network of peers to build knowledge through a community of learning, inquiry, and practice. 

PAST WORKSHOPS & LECTURES

The Case for Hip-Hop Forestry 

As a forester, Dr. Thomas Easley developed a deeper understanding of why diversity works so well and applied that approach to hip-hop, health, environmental justice, and spirituality. Together we can broaden our message to diverse audiences and partners, and hopefully share the Adirondack park experience with more people of color. 

Public lecture: May 17, 2019

Teacher Climate Institute

 

When teaching climate change it is easy to feel buried by data. We will explore exciting new ways that The Wild Center and others are communicating climate change and its associated impacts in an engaging cross-disciplinary manner. Interact with climate scientists and leave with resources and ideas to use in the

classroom. 

 

Dates: July 15 - 18, 2019.

Mindfulness Training for Educators

 

Participants will learn mindfulness practices, meditation, the neuroscience of learning, the nature of mind, and how to cultivate their inner resources. Learn how mindfulness might benefit you in your role as an educator, and re-connect with the ideals that brought you into this field from the start!

Dates: August 4 - 10, 2019

Place-Based Education for Educators 

 

How does the place where you teach influence your curriculum? What tools can be used to connect students to place? Participants in the workshop will explore these topics while hiking in Adirondack Park, engaging in inquiry and design experiences, and planning place-based lessons and educational experiences for their students. 

 

Dates: August 12 - 16, 2019.
