The Gates By 2017/18 DTE Educators


 A guide to experiential "sense of place" lesson plans for 1-6th grade teachers/educators



Educators involved in the 2017/18 Alaska Arctic Expedition completed a series of experiential lessons (written and video), that connect students to "The Gates of the Arctic" landscape, culture, and what to do next in this environment. These three lesson plan examples are a taste of the "The Gates" booklet. 

A PDF booklet of all 2017/18 lesson plans will be available October 1, 2018, stay tuned.
