What Is Your Understanding Of Teacher Engagement In Your Outdoor Setting?

Want to revisit the Spring Outdoor Classroom conference and Thinking Out Loud at Cuyamaca College? Come and join members of the San Diego Reggio Roundtable Steering Committee to hear Richard Louv speak at the San Diego Natural History Museum next Tuesday, July 10th at 7:00 p.m.

“The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.” —RICHARD LOUV

What is teacher engagement?

  • Awareness, Observation, Connection, Reception, Acceptance, Alignment, Empathy, Unconditional Positive Regard, Understanding, Presence, Communication, Action, Reflection, Evaluation, Learning.

“There is one truth about every educational

setting: teachers talk too much and listen too

little. Children need teachers who know that

what motivates children is to have their

questions answered, not the teacher’s.

Teachers who stimulate more questions than

they directly provide are truly teaching.”

-Jim Greenman, Caring Spaces, Learning Places:

Children’s Environments That Work

I am so excited to attend this event. I am always looking for inspiration in creating engaging and thought provoking environments and reflecting on my teaching practice in an Outdoor Classroom.
