Course Description

This course explores the significance of the relationship of the child to the natural world and introduces students to a pedagogical approach which involves environmental inquiry. Course content includes historical and cross-cultural overviews of our relationship to nature; the psychological significance of nature; the impact of exposure to the natural environment on children's values, attitudes, learning, and behaviour; and therapeutic uses of nature. In this course, students will also be involved in designing curriculum materials or environments for children which have a specific emphasis on incorporating the natural world.
