AEM September 2023

Greetings from the team at Authentic Exploration Matters(AEM).  We are working on a few “upgrades” to our website and striving to make obtaining educator resources even easier.  Additionally, we are excited to be attending and presenting at the Green Schools of Excellence Banquet on September 14, during which we will have an announcement for a fun opportunity that will get you moving as you learn and do some good for the Earth.  We hope to see you at our Leading Light meet and greet on September 17, from 9-11am at East End Market on Corrine in Winter Park.  This is a very informal event during which educators can chat, collaborate, and ask for help.  We believe that connecting the educator community is important.

Below is the pdf for our new format.  Simply click the below link to access the resources.  Once you reach the page, click the photo and you will be taken directly to the website of the live webcam feeds.  

Our Resource Roundup this week will focus on creative curriculum writing ideas.  Our AEM Educator Ambassador, Susan Peoski, requested this weeks topic.  Susan is the environmental sciences teacher and green team lead at Edgewater HS.  She is passionate about engaging her students through innovative and creative strategies that prompt students to explore and understand the relationships that exist among nearly everything in the world.  She values hands-on learning opportunities as a way to engage students with critical thinking.  By using the right approach, creative lesson plans/curriculum writing can introduce new opportunities to encourage problem-solving skills among students, as well as help youth to develop their own original ideas.  Thoughtful lesson planning can encourage exploration, free students to speak in their own words, and infuse creativity into the learning process.

As we finish up the month of September, remember that you can access all of this past months resources by clicking on the Canva link below.  Whether you access the page via clicking the below pdf or the Canva link, once you find the resource you would like to access, simply click the circular image next to the description or click on the canvas link.  As always, I have also provided the links at this bottom of this email as well.
