Southern Oregon Regional Environmental Education Leaders (SOREEL)
SOREEL connects organizations and educators that focus on science and environmental education in Southern Oregon to coordinate, share resources, and collaborate around related educational efforts.
Many SOREEL partners, including Educate Regenerate, are now offering online or remote programs to meet classroom educators' needs during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.
Coaching & Curriculum Development
Educators, whatever your situation, I am committed to collaborating with you to design engaging learning experiences for your students.
School & Informal Program Support
Potential ways I can support your program include:
Create custom "plug and play" environmental education activities for remote learning
Write custom lesson plans classroom or alternative set-ups
Lead in-person small group activities in a natural area or on school grounds (local schools only)
Coach you through a brainstorm session or answer questions for projects you're already working on
Modify existing lessons/activities so they can be led by parents or volunteers in small group settings
Connect you with engaging environmental education online resources
"Zoom In" as a guest speaker or to lead an activity
Translate your existing curriculum for a remote learning set-up
Unify existing lesson plans into a cohesive unit plan
Please note that while my work is inherently interdisciplinary and I therefor do not limit my scope to a specific subject area, I do expect the overall intent of any project to align with the Educate Regenerate Philosophy.
