ARe we going to subgroups for discussion?
Ian Brown SPS Resource Conservation
01:06:27
sorry, have to bow out.
Beck Pittman
01:09:26
I always find this an interesting discussion, because it sometimes creates subjectivity in science, which obviously scientists want to be objective… reminds me of a snake scientists who was wondering about, what did it feel like to be a snake? And imagined how it felt, and got farther with his studies on snakes
Beck Pittman
01:09:38
sorry that’s very vague! But I only half-heartedly remember this story!

Fully realize I was spoiled where I grew up, but we did our science class in Glacier National Park. I still like science to this day!
Karen
01:09:50
Wondering is so opening, and unthreatening, abstract yet self directed learning.
Priya Pugh
01:10:22
Yes Beck - perspective taking as a way of wondering! I’ve heard lots of scientists share that they do this, but it’s often anecdotal. So interesting!
matthew davis
01:10:22
wondering about opening students to discomfort around "wondering" orienting toward questions instead of "right answer" seeking
kengstrom@seattleschools.org
01:10:23
Nature should inspire wondering - it is changing every moment
Sharon Siehl - Tilth Alliance
01:10:26
Wondering can build excitement, to follow more questions — like how insect life cycles connect to plant life cycles
Karen
01:10:32
"think like a cherry tree" guidance from William McDonough...

01:10:35
Wonder is an interesting word because it means to be curious but all to be awed. I think leading with a sense of wonder helps people to have connection
Carmen Berrysmith
01:10:53
as a person of color in a predominantly white school I always had a feeling I didn't belong. This closely relates to the need for our teachers to look like our students

I recently stood on a rocky beach and felt wonder (awe) about the scope of the ocean--I was watching the waves churn up sea grass, seeing animals washed up on shore, seeing many kinds of rocks on the beach and really experiencing bounty of the sea

Wondering is not equitably afforded.
Nathanael E Mengist
01:12:33
Yet the wondering of bipoc young folx can save the world
Priya Pugh
01:12:40
Yes absolutely Carmen + Nat. Who gets to wonder? Who’s wondering gets taken up
Carmen Berrysmith
01:14:04
I think it often ties back to the power dynamic of the student and teacher mentality. The idea that adults are more than youth is a broken idea that will have to change
Nathanael E Mengist
01:15:45
100% agree, Carmen! Valuing the sense-making of young children is a key intervention of our project
Priya Pugh
01:16:07
Agree ^ there are power dynamics at play always between educators and learners. and especially for BIPOC youth
kengstrom@seattleschools.org
01:17:12
Amen. I taught a student led outdoor education and I was the learner. It was fun and very inspiring.

01:17:15
Sorry I have to leave early....family work plans changed.
Priya Pugh
01:17:33
Thanks for joining!
matthew davis
01:18:17
I'm enjoying this conversaition but need to help my kiddo.
matthew davis
01:18:31
is there a way to access the rest of this presentation later?
Natasha Mosher
01:18:42
+1 Carmen. I’m also curious about our children who have roots in (and including moving from) other countries/cultures where the relationship with the outdoors is much different than in the USA.
Priya Pugh
01:19:01
It’s being recorded so Think you can access at any time
Sharon Siehl - Tilth Alliance
01:19:06
Matthew, this is being recorded and we will share it with the listserve
matthew davis
01:19:37
ah thank you so much!
Sharon Siehl - Tilth Alliance
01:21:04
DCI = Disciplinary Core Idea is a core prinipal from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)
Carmen Berrysmith
01:22:13
I wonder how much the wondering walk and wondering activities change as young people get older? were there mixed age group walks?
Sharon Siehl - Tilth Alliance
01:22:35
That’s a great question
Nathanael E Mengist
01:22:51
I love that you ‘wondered’ it :D
Sharon Siehl - Tilth Alliance
01:22:54
The classes are Kinder - 3rd grade, and there are adult teachers, parents/family members, and other adults
Priya Pugh
01:22:58
Natasha - yes, nature-culture relations are different across different communities, and these different orientations inform how we see the world! A big question for educators - and what Jordan is diving into - is how do we learn to see this in children thinking? While also considering the different power dynamics in adult-child interactions that Carmen was getting at. Such an important topic to keep thinking about
Natasha Mosher
01:23:51
Thank you for that reflection, Priya.
Carmen Berrysmith
01:27:22
I personally work with highschool students and we give them a lot of decision making power in the program and have seen and experienced youth growth and learning happening from the student to student relationship. Has there been conversation around having these classes taught by past students? possibly even having a sibling experience? older sister teaches younger brother?
Priya Pugh
01:29:32
Carmen - great questions. Happy to talk more about this after but short answer is we have co-designed family tools and a family storyline - designed to take on these inquiries in intergenerational learning communities
kengstrom@seattleschools.org
01:29:51
Have you used the Seattle Schools forest - Cleveland in Issaquah area?
Priya Pugh
01:29:52
But student-student teaching no (not yet, explicitly)
Cheri

Thank you all for this important work, feels like science applied the Coyote Mentoring pedagogy. Have to go Thank you
Kim @ Classroom in Bloom
01:38:10
Thank you for hosting this seminar and taking time to present your data. What a fantastic way to let kids explore and learn about the world around them, through their sense of wonder and curiosity.
Beck Pittman

Do you see the garden at CHOP relating to these topics?
Nathanael E Mengist
01:44:53
“how might encouraging adults to wonder help bring them into learning gardens?”
Carmen Berrysmith
01:45:44
^^ love it <3
Karen
01:45:46
In wondering how to rewild my yard, I now realize I [must] wonder how to speak to my neighbors about my messy endeavor... the most challenging socio-cultural aspect of the intersect . Power relations plus!
Nathanael E Mengist
