Advocacy Webinar | Public Lands in the United States: A Curriculum Introduction
AORE Program Webinar
AORE is bringing representatives from The Wilderness Society together to share introductory information about their curriculum with our members.
The Wilderness Society and the Avarna Group, working with Indigenous consultants Daisy Purdy, Honor Keeler, Dr. Rae Gould and Yufna Soldier Wolf, has published a teaching curriculum for helping educators, youth leaders and even government agencies share the full story of public lands:
Public Lands in the United States: A Curriculum
The downloadable curriculum includes five chapters, each with context-setting background, step by step lesson plans and materials for each activity—from printable images and “Wilderness Values” cue cards to timeline puzzles and research prompts about current diversity and access efforts and current threats to public lands. Although it’s geared especially for those working with high school-aged students, it’s been downloaded by university staff, nonprofits and agencies such as the National Parks Service and U.S. Forest Service.
Register for the introductory webinar; we'll send a link to the downloadable curriculum in the confirmation.
