Stories of Us and the Environment

Last week the NWESD 189 held the first of a two-part ClimeTime class called “Stories of Us and the Environment.” This class focused on the intersection of ELA and science, specifically through the lens of narratives that we all have inside of us.

A group of mostly K-5 teachers learned about narratives from indigenous cultures, the western science narrative, narratives of migrant students, and the ELA skill of close reading to help access the narratives of others.

This course is facilitated with the Garden of the Salish Sea Curriculum (a Community Based Organization) and the NWESD as a part of the Climate Science Proviso funding from Washington State.

Part two of the class will reconvene on February 25, 2019.
