It’s safe to say we all want our programs’ outdoor spaces to be inclusive and welcoming. Creating nature-based curriculum and programs that center diverse cultural perspectives can be challenging but is necessary for transforming outdoor spaces into inclusive places. Just in time for summer program planning, presented by early childhood culture and nature expert, Ashley Brailsford, Ph.D., will offer ideas and suggestions to not only make sure your summer program is not only fun, but also nature-based and culturally responsive.
This webinar will provide an overview of 7 strategies for how to create culturally centered nature-based curriculum and programs that will apply throughout the year as well ask in the summer. You will learn about a multicultural curriculum approach through which you can develop your program and evaluate your own programming. Then, we’ll review tools such as multicultural literature, interviews and the creative arts that can help transform your curriculum and programs and improve engagement of young children and families in nature education.
Join this awe-inspiring webinar to learn:
- Begin thinking about summer time planning with a nature-based lens.
- List 7 strategies to create culturally-centered programs or curriculum
- Analyze your own program or curriculum for opportunities to improve using our evaluation checklist
