Description

Class Experience

Learners will: 
Define characteristics of bird songs 
Compare and contrast a variety of sounds 
Interpret spectrograms (sound graphs) to visualize bird songs 
Practice methods for bird identification by ear 
Professionally I have accumulated over 3 years of experience working as a Teacher/Naturalist at two different outdoor learning centers. In both roles I taught environmental education programs as school field trips, scout programs, birthday parties, one-off programs, multi-week series, summer camps, and more. I also had the opportunity to create my own curriculum for after school and weekend programming and offered a variety of course options. I have always enjoyed empowering people to find a way to love learning, and I hope to use this collection of experience to share knowledge of nature and inspire learners to explore outdoors through our classes together.
Homework is not required, but I encourage everyone to take what we learn together outside with them after class to extend the lesson!
Optional: Headphones and/or a quiet space would be helpful to hear as clear as possible!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
