Calling Washington State
Join OSPI staff and Dr. Adeyemi Stembridge to develop from scratch or fine tune existing curriculum resources for outdoor and environmental and sustainability education.
The first workshop will engage participants in understanding how to use the Zine to build Culturally Responsive Education (CRE) units of study that are aligned with the Environmental and Sustainability Education (ESE) standards. Teams will work independently for up to eight weeks with the Zine.
In the second workshop, teams will share their experiences and work products with the group for feedback and iterative planning.
“Teaching is an artmaking endeavor,” Yemi Stembridge writes, one that requires flexibility and creativity. But its purpose is equity, “the extent to which students are effectively prepared for social and economic opportunities beyond school.” It’s a brilliant framing of the task of the teacher, and one that Stembridge reminds us requires that we see each child as “irreducibly” individual. This meditation on how we can create the bridge between artistry and equity by careful attention to our learners as individuals is worth every teacher’s time.
