DAY 1 (6/20, 12:50-2:40 PM): Participants will dive into best practices for integrating literacy through experiential STEM lessons using the outdoor classroom. Participants will take part in model lessons, explore ways to plan for and implement lessons that address key literacy components (Tier 3 vocabulary, non-fiction text, writing), and gain 30 day access to the REAL School Gardens Coaching Center.
DAY 2 (6/21, 10:00-11:40 AM): This session is for participants who took part in the first day. Participants will apply practices from the first day to create an outline that is specific to their grade-level/school specific literacy goals. Participants will have the opportunity to create a scope and sequence of aligned literacy lessons to STEM content and/or dive deeper into lesson creation. This day is workshop-based with support from the REAL School Gardens team. Tools will be provided for this work.
