  • Celebration of Learning

    For TSS graduate students’ final assignment of the year, they are tasked with synthesizing all that they learned, experienced, and came to understand from the year into a final product. Some create written pieces and some create artistic pieces. As we celebrate the graduation of TSS’s 22nd graduate class, we’ll publish two of these culminating pieces on the blog this week. Today, we feature Sam Neirman’s poem, which he used to capture the feelings and experiences of this past year. He read the poem at a reception for all graduate students and their guests during Graduation Week.

  • Legend: Map of the Known Universe

    For TSS graduate students’ final assignment of the year, they are tasked with synthesizing all that they learned, experienced, and came to understand from the year into a final product. Some create written pieces and some create artistic pieces. As we celebrate the graduation of TSS’s 22nd graduate class, we’ll publish two of these culminating pieces on the blog this week. First, we have Nicole Gautier’s key or legend to a map of her experiences from the year, which celebrates some of her greatest and most challenging teaching moments as well as an important wildlife encounter.

  • Layers of Learning

    The layers of learning at Teton Science Schools are as complex and beautiful as the rock layers depicted on the geological maps of Jackson Hole. These layers of learning are the fabric of the TSS experience and a catalyst to the multiplier effect of the TSS mission.

  • The Efficacy of Field-Based Education

    In the summer of 2014, I found myself a few miles up Slough Creek in Yellowstone National Park watching a sow and two grizzly bear cubs saunter through the marsh. Their presence was quiet and graceful; the group of us, 15 undergraduate students and four instructors, including me, became transfixed.

  • Place-Based Education Symposium: Communities as Learning Environments

    As the emergence of personalized learning, project-based learning, and deeper learning increases, the time is right to connect learning to communities in authentic and meaningful ways. A place-based education approach can connect learning models, increase the power of our educational system, and provide a foundation for a thriving democracy.
