Summer Learning

I am spending this week at an institute at Shelburne Farms called  Community Works Institute-East(click on link for more information).CWI's Mission is to support educators in creating curriculum with place as the context, service-learning as the strategy, and sustainability as the goal.We are exploring the ECO(Educating Children Outdoors) program at Union School, and focusing on sustainability as a lens for viewing the world.

Mrs. Wrigley and I cannot wait to share our learning with all of you!
