Teachers in Nature
Weekend Escape Workshop
Teachers, escape to Long Lake sans students! We are inviting our current teachers, as well as, any interested educators to a short weekend workshop. This weekend is an opportunity to meet other teachers, share ideas, learn about new Long Lake programs and answer questions you may have before your school’s visit. We explore the ins and outs of the Long Lake programs and just how and why Long Lake teaches about nature. Additionally, we provide planning tips, in school curriculum (like a lot of nature based curriculum you could use in your classroom), and continuing education in standards based outdoor exploration. This is also a time to relax, enjoy the lakeside scenery, and make new friends; we may even be having a happy hour! (There is something you can’t do when kids are in residence). Overall, this could be great a opportunity for current and prospective Long Lake teachers to make connections with one another, with Long Lake coordinators, and with the Long Lake curriculum. Oh, and as teachers, we think it will be a hoot to get together and learn without the kids!!
Option 1: May 11-12,2018 (Friday 6:00 pm flexible start to Saturday at 4:30 pm)
Option 2: September 21-22 (Friday 6:00 pm flexible start to Saturday at 4:30 pm)
Cost: A $40 registration fee to partially cover food and lodging. Long Lake covers the rest of the cost because we understand the importance and value of this pre-trip experience for new and returning teachers. We hope that participants will learn more about this special place and the range of opportunities available here.
