We are excited to once again host Traverse Boulder at Watershed School from June 3-5, 2019!
Please take a few minutes to read through and complete the following proposal form. All accepted expedition leaders from the Boulder area will be compensated with free conference attendance and a stipend: $500 (for a three hour) or $800 (for a six hour). All accepted expedition leaders who require travel to Boulder for Traverse will be compensated with travel assistance and free conference attendance.
CALLING QUESTIONS:We are looking for three- or six-hour expeditions that address big questions, such as:
How do we engage students in real work that matters outside the classroom?
How do we cultivate lifelong learners?
How do we build local partnerships and be of service to our communities?
How do places and spaces help us create meaning?
How do we encourage innovation and positive change?
How do we foster inquiry and community in our schools?
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 Watershed School 's campus or in the greater Boulder (or Denver) 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. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis and we will follow up with you two weeks (or less) post submission.
Thank you for your submissions.
Take care,Hannah Nelson, Mishel Gantz, Katy Hilston, Tim Breen and the Traverse Boulder Programming Team
