GRAND STAIRCASE- ESCALANTE NATIONAL MONUMENT:
Culturally and Ecologically Responsive Classrooms
Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument: Culturally and Ecologically Responsive Classrooms
We are thrilled at the prospect of offering a (social distancing, outdoor focused) program for teachers in Southern Utah the second week of June in 2021.
This program will take place in the red rock country of Southwestern US. The area is close to several protected (and disputed) lands and some historical Native American sites. The objective of the program is to facilitate culturally and ecologically responsive classrooms. We will do this through participating in workshops, group discussions and listening to lectures by educators, artists, scientists and representatives of the Diné (Navajo). Included are also some famous hikes in the area, a visit to the Anasazi State Museum, the Capitol Reef Station and a lesson from an outdoor survival school. Guests will overnight at the Capitol Reef Resort in Conestoga wagons, with A/C. Masks will be worn indoors, if still necessary.
PROGRAM COST: $995 per person, not including airfare
