July 7-9 ($400.00 per Person)
Join the Alaska State Writing Consortium’s Sondra Porter and the Murie Science and Learning Center’s Jessica Brillhart for an exploration of science and writing in Denali National Park. We’ll learn about Denali’s natural history and current research efforts as we develop our writing skills and discuss applications for our students. In this two credit teacher training we will discuss the literacy of science and use these concepts to reinforce the Alaska State Standards for both language arts and science grades K-12.
Scholarship money is available for teachers from UAS Partnership Districts (Bering Straits, Denali, Haines, Juneau, LKSD, Mat-Su, Pribilofs, Southeast Island, Wrangell, Yukon-Koyukuk.) For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About This Teacher Training
Murie Science & Learning Center Teachers Trainings explore the vast ecosystems and vibrant cultures of the Far North. Classes are small, but the classrooms are grand – set in Denali National Park’s landscape of taiga forest, glacier-clad mountains, and wide-open tundra. The Murie Science and Learning Center is a new facility dedicated to research and education about America’s eight northernmost National Parks. The Center, developed by the National Park Service, is a collaborative effort of several education and research organizations.
What To Expect
Tent cabin at the Field Camp – click for larger photo. This course is based out of the Murie Science and Learning Center Field Camp, located 35 miles inside Denali National Park in the area of Igloo Canyon. Just below Sable Pass, Igloo Canyon is where the taiga forest gives way to subarctic tundra. From this spectacular location we’ll set out each day to explore Denali’s diverse environments.
The Field Camp includes rustic tent cabins and a common dining tent. All meals, accommodations, transportation, and instruction are included. Family-style meals are simple and healthy. Each tent cabin sleeps four people on platform beds with mattresses. Participants bring their own sleeping bag and pillow case.
This course starts at the Murie Science and Learning Center at the Park entrance. To allow for travel time to Denali, this course begins at 1:00 p.m. on the first day and ends at 4:00 p.m. on the last day.
Programs are limited to 10 participants.
University of Alaska Southeast offers two professional development credits (level 595) for this Teacher Training. The credit expense for this teacher training is included in the course fee.
Hiking Distances and Physical Fitness
What to expect when we have a trading robot doing the trading functions on behalf of the investor is a question that will definitely rise in every investors mind. The investors are required to set the parameters of the trade and watch the system generate profits on your behalf. Expect nothing less than double of the investments you have made if you are using a trading app as the Bitcoin Trader App.
Field Seminars are active learning experiences. Most involve hiking 1-4 miles with 1,000 feet elevation gain over uneven, rocky terrain such as tundra and river bars. Please inquire about hiking distances for specific seminars. Participants must be capable walkers, in good health, and equipped for sudden changes in weather.
