Cohort 7 is proud to introduce Fall in the Field 2015: Rooted in Discovery.
For those of you who may not know, Fall in the Field is a place-based capstone experience for SOU Environmental Education Master’s students. Each cohort designs residential and non-residential environmental education programs for and delivers them each fall. This allows emerging environmental educators to put into practice what they have learned in the program and provide a much needed service to students throughout Southern Oregon. This year, we will be accepting classes from grades 4-12 (grade range varies by site).
The residential and day programs are offered at three field sites this year. Residential programs are held at the Siskiyou Field Institute’s Deer Creek Center for Field Research and Education in Selma, OR. Day programs are offered at two sites in and around Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument off of Hwy 66 near the Green Springs Summit, and this year we are introducing a pilot day program at Ashland Pond in Ashland, Oregon. All programs are aligned to interdisciplinary state standards including Science, English, Math, Social Sciences, and much more.
This year’s theme is “Rooted in Discovery: Explore our space, Find our place.” The phrase was born from our collective interest in guiding students to explore connections in nature, with nature, and with each other. By discovering the world around them, we hope students will gain a better understanding of their environment and the role they play in their communities, ultimately rooting them in discovery.
