Webinar: How to be a Better Teacher-Naturalist
This is an online event
28 Lennox St
In her presentation, Clare will share her straight-forward techniques for engaging people of all ages with the natural world. Often using paper and pencil in an Observational Format, she shows ways to use both writing, simple drawings, and various observation techniques to record what is being seen directly while outdoors. In fact, Clare uses an instructional method that harkens back to the early study of Science, when naturalists had to record their observations in order to prove what they had seen to their patrons and colleagues. Today, when schools are under pressure to meet State Standards, Clare is careful to make sure her work in classrooms fits into the particular curriculum of each class, age and situation.Clare Walker Leslie grew up outdoors playing in the woods and fields near Philadelphia. After college, she developed a career that combined the study of Nature and drawing/writing/painting/teaching as a means of connecting both herself and her students with where they live, season by season and year upon year. A self-taught naturalist, she has just published her twelfth book, entitled The Curious Naturalist. Prominent among her earlier books were The Nature Connection (2010) and Keeping a Nature Journal (2003). Over the years, she has been fortunate to study with some of Europe’s top wildlife artists. Clare lives in Cambridge, MA and Granville, VT. Learn more at www.clarewalkerleslie.com.
