The Deep Creek School
1.) This story intrigues me because it seems to have been effective. I
wonder if the children have retain their commitment to ecology, or if
the school as a whole has
reaped rewards?
2.) This lesson teaches students that "peoplekind" have been connected to
the earth since time began. And that societies should appreciate the
natural beauty of the the earth ,thus becoming lifelong ecologists.
When a community, like a school, respects the surroundings, self respect
evolves and this can become a never ending cycle of good. And too when
people show their appreciation of the earth through art, the benefits
become twofold. Society then has more to hold up as valuable, a sense of
responsibilty grows in everyone.
3.)The adaptations I would make in this type of project would be to relate
the lesson to a current and local issue. For example the mural art around
town or the Pygmy Owl issue. I could contact places like Chicano Por Las
Causes.(sp?) Or local museums that have outdoor art could be of
assistance.This would be a fun field trip.
4.)These kinds of curricula could easily be related to a History class.
When we study the tools and art of a culture we learn to appreciate the
inherent value.
