Taking Down the Classroom Walls - It's Time to Teach Outside!

September 28, 2017
Following the culmination of Phase One (hardscape) and Two (student engagement features) of the newly built Washburn Outdoor Classroom - it's time for Phase Three. Training teachers to teach outside. Working with lead teachers on-site and bringing in outdoor teaching experts, we'll host an outdoor learning day where each student and teacher will move through stations in the outdoor classroom to learn to how adjust curriculum and address student behavior and engagement without the tradition of four walls. Through hands on learning for both student and teacher we will aim to grow environmental literacy while providing support and building comfort teaching and learning outside.

Intended impact of project

Increased environmental & sustainability literacy
