"Laura, I applaud your Master's thesis efforts. I've just begun a Master's program, also, hoping to combine Adventure Education and a writing curriculum. Regarding NCLB, all I can report is that documentation is extremely important…"

Practicum Supervisor/Mentor Wanted for Kingman, AZ

Are you interested in being a mentor to another English teacher and supervising a practicum based on improving English teaching skills? I need somebody to assist me with my practicum by observing me teach and providing feedback for my practicum studies through Prescott College. Ultimately for my practicum I will be focusing on strengthening my English teaching skills at the high school level, and incorporating some outdoor writing ideas at the same time, as well as working on a website.

How Students Learn Today

This is what I'm trying to get started....WIP

Experiences inside and outside of the classroom can be modified to be more experiential. By gradually introducing small steps into curriculum, teachers can introduce meaningful exercises into everyday writing which would normally be very mundane to most students otherwise--especially those students who find writing very challenging. Wildermuse is a site created to bring elements of writing and nature together in order to enhance students' degree of self-expression through writing primarily, then through other modalities secondarily. Other modalities could be art, movement, music, videos, dance and mixtures of things. Educators in the classroom environment will soon be able to find bits of curriculum on this site that can be used indoors, or by stepping outdoors during a class period. Educators who take students on nature walks or into the wilderness will be able to find expressive exercises to enrich the outdoors experience and record them for future use.

I like your idea of taking students outside into the real classroom. You have given me some ideas about incorporating smart phone technology, cameras, recorders, journals, etc. that my students could bring with them on a walk along the river. Maybe we could blog on the trail.

I'm hoping to develop outdoor writing lessons with experiential lessons for teens and junior college students. First things first--how to include the basics and make it fun, memorable, and interesting?
