  • Expanding the TSS Family

    As I look back over our time in Bhutan, I am struck by the many stories, feelings, and conversations that make up my experience there. I remember walking near a river with a young teacher named Bhagat, talking about his small rural village school, the Bhutanese culture, and how to show respect according to social status.

  • Inquiry and Design Learning in Punakha, Bhutan

    At the core of the Teton Science Schools’ framework are the interlinked inquiry and design cycles.

This process takes practice, and that’s just what veteran place-based education teachers from across Bhutan have been doing for the past week in our workshop.
