Promising Practices in Nature- and Place-based Elementary Education
Join us for a new, day-long conference of educators who are redefining what’s possible in elementary education. As we build school programs around place-based social studies, outdoor science lessons, Forest Fridays and more, we’re connecting children to the natural world, local communities and big ideas. Antioch’s popular In Bloom conferences have energized the nature-based early childhood movement, and participants have wondered, “What about the big kids?” Inside-Outside is our response.
We’ll begin the day with a ceremonial opening, followed by a morning keynote. Breakout workshop sessions will follow, then lunch (on us)! The afternoon program consists of a second keynote and a second set of workshops from which to choose content of interest to you.
This conference is a collaborative event among the Department of Education at Antioch University New England, the Monadnock region Place-based Education Committee, the Harris Center for Conservation Education, The Caterpillar Lab, Symonds Elementary School and the Keene School District. It is made possible through funding from the George B. Storer Foundation.
