Want to help “leave no child inside”? This audio series is for parents, outdoor educators, homeschoolers, youth leaders, community teachers, and anyone seeking ways to teach nature literacy and guide children to be eager and inquisitive life-long learners (and to help heal nature deficit disorder). How did ancient people teach their children the complex arts of living off the land? How did they awaken instinct and spirit and a burning desire to know? How did they get children to learn for themselves? Can these educational methods help us teach our children today?
Wilderness Awareness School’s Art of Mentoring is about asking questions powerfully, appreciating individuality, inspiring a need to know, and improvising to let nature be the teacher. Coyote teaching strategies like storytelling, reflective questioning, and tracking will inspire student curiosity and encourage self-sufficiency both in the field and in the classroom.
For the comprehensive presentation of the Art of Mentoring and Coyote Teaching approach, see Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature. To experience and learn Coyote Mentoring in person with the staff of Wilderness Awareness School, join us at our Coyote Mentoring workshops or Art of Mentoring workshops, with upcoming offerings on our Adult Programs page.
