    Wilderness Investigations Teacher Workshop

    Steve Archibald, Education and Outreach Representative at the Carhart National Wilderness Training Center, will provide a two day workshop for teachers entitled Wilderness Investigations (WI). This rigorous, standards-correlated, and place-based toolkit includes a live teacher training workshop, printed and downloadable teaching materials, online investigation-specific training, and a WI teacher networking site for sharing, problem-solving, and WI program announcements. WI topics are focused on key elements of the Wilderness Act of 1964 and include classroom, field, and family components. Every WI investigation includes project-based/hands-on activities, and many lead to service learning opportunities. WI is subject-integrated and geared mainly to 5th-8th grade audiences (but is easily adapted for other grades). College credit is available through Boise State University.
