Place in Education Symposium for B.C. Gr. 4-12 Educators

Start date: September 29, 2016 - End date: October 1, 2016
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Barkerville, BC

This is a “field trip” for teachers set in the spectacular Barkerville Historic Town, and what we hope will be a one-of-a-kind professional development opportunity,

This symposium will explore the challenges of bringing place-based curriculum, place-conscious learning and geographic literacy into the classroom, and bringing the classroom out into the physical and cultural landscape. Our intended audience includes Social Studies educators, teachers who love field trips, and others who want to bring an aspect of Place into their Fine Arts, Humanities, Environmental Science, English/Language Arts, Applied Skills, or Intermediate teaching practice.
