Teaching Off-Trail with Peter Dargatz: Kindergarten Transformed through Nature and Play
Join us for a presentation from Peter Dargatz on play and nature-based kindergarten and his own transformation from “a national board-certified teacher, and public school coordinator, from an anxious assessor and worksheet distributor to a fair and fun facilitator of learning while in the same public school system.” He will discuss his book, Teaching Off-Trail, and share insights on the importance of play, creative expression, and personalization in indoor and outdoor classrooms. Peter’s experience creating a nature kindergarten program that emphasizes community partnerships, service learning, and meaningful and memorable experiences in the outdoors for children can empower our approach to education to best serve future generations. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and accompanied by light refreshments.
