On Thursday, April 8th, 7:00 - 8:30 PM (EST), Marlo Beaucage from Johnny Therriault School on Aroland First Nation led the Natural Curiosity community in conversation about how we can begin to decolonize the classroom, by grounding our love of teaching and learning on the land. Marlo's story in Natural Curiosity 2nd Edition (2018) continues to be a source of inspiration to thousands of educators across Turtle Island who use the resource to guide their environmental inquiry practice. In this webinar, Marlo shares about how her teaching philosophy and practice continues to shift and grow, with a renewed focus on spirituality and a two-eyed seeing approach. Learn about how land-based learning continues to be an integral part of children’s learning and wellbeing in Aroland First Nation, amid COVID-19.
