Making The Shift is a monthly newsletter to share stories, resources, and ideas around environmental education through inquiry-based learning. Let's collaborate!
Summer Reading Edition:
Recommended Books to Spark Inquiry!

Happy Summer! 

Summer is upon us, and with it comes long warm days and beautiful bright nights. As educators, the summer months give us time to stop, rest, and reflect on our practice. It gives us time to learn, and perhaps engage in an inquiry of our own! Wherever you are these next 2 months, here are some fabulous books - both for professional development and for classroom inquiry - that can be added to your reading list.

Have a safe and happy summer – and stay tuned for future updates and continued monthly newsletter come September!

A special THANK YOU to every educator, community partner and student who has contributed to the world of Environmental Inquiry this 2014-2015 school year. It has been our most exciting year yet!

We are looking forward to another year learning together!
