Place-based Learning Along the Lower Fraser

In this workshop, teachers will explore concepts and techniques related to place-based learning along the Lower Fraser River. Teaching place-based learning in an urban area means grappling with the complex systems in a metropolis, so the workshop begins with an overview of the principles of urban environmental education. Teachers will then learn a versatile place-based learning tool that can be applied to all grades and a diversity of curricular units. The workshop ends with a discussion of curricular links and evaluation strategies.

The skills learnt in this workshop support BC’s science curriculum, as well as many core competencies.
