We are excited to host Traverse Portland at Catlin Gabel School and the CENTER from June 24th-26th, 2019! We invite you to submit an expedition proposal for the Traverse 2019 program. Please take a few minutes to read through and complete the following proposal form.
CALLING QUESTIONS:We are looking for three- or six-hour expeditions that address big questions, such as:
- How do we explore and honor the complexity of our communities and identities?
- How do we cultivate lifelong learners? - How do we authentically engage communities?
- How do places and spaces help us create meaning?
-How do we encourage innovation and positive change?
ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA:We want to offer a diverse array of expeditions from PS-12 teachers, administrators, and program leaders from public schools, private schools, and non-profit organizations. We will select expeditions that commit to an exploration of a calling question(s), display experiential teaching practices, and offer clear takeaways for conference attendees. Please note that proposed expeditions can take place either on Catlin Gabel School 's campus or in the greater Portland metro area. We can provide transportation to and from expedition sites. If your expedition has multiple presenters, please first list the contact information for the point-person on your team.
EXPEDITION LEADERS:All expedition leaders from the Portland area will:1.) receive free conference attendance2.) receive a $500-$800 stipend per expedition (actual amount depends on length of expedition, and whether you are presenting as an individual or with a team).
