Curriculum Implementation Day brought energy, learning

The event, Classrooms to Communities (C2C), was a way for teachers to network with local experts

Newly formed Kootenay Columbia Environmental Educators (KCEE) a local of the provincial body Environmental Educators Provincial Specialist Association or EEPSA, in collaboration with the Columbia Basin Environmental Educators Network (CBEEN) and the Kootenay Boundary Environmental Educators (KBEE), put on a Curriculum Implementation Day in SD 20.

The event, Classrooms to Communities (C2C), was a way for teachers to network with the local experts in their community in hopes that those networking opportunities will lead to collaborative efforts in the classroom or in the field.

The mandate of the KCEE is to provide support and professional development to teachers in SD 20 in regards to their engagement in place-based/place-conscious education. In layman’s terms, how can teachers use the environment, community infrastructure and community experts as a vehicle to teach the curriculum to students thereby developing a local citizenship and environmental awareness and curiosity?

The KCEE hosted a session that teachers in SD20 attended. It was a day-long workshop that encouraged teachers to engage in place-based learning in their communities with the support of fellow teachers and community experts. There were 15 community experts and a wealth of information and experience in the room.

The event was held at JL Crowe with the ceremony acknowledging the Sinixt Territory by COINS Nov. 27.
