In July, 2013, the University of Alaska Southeast held a 3-day teachers’ conference called  STREAM: a Pedagogy of Place, (STREAM = Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, & Mathematics)  This gathering at Auke Lake campus was a pilot, aimed at helping teachers connect students to place. For 3 days, we held morning sessions at UAS, dispersing in the afternoons to 4 habitats: streams, glacier, forest and beach.

Here’s a 10-page document I created for groups visiting the glacier on afternoon field trips:
