Teacher Experiences

Reflection on using the Land Talk Curriculum

Lynne Zummo

During the 2018-2019 school year, we were fortunate to work with several amazing teachers who piloted different versions of the Land Talk curriculum in their classrooms. Teachers ranged in context from 2nd grade to 12th grade, from Hawaii to Indiana to Maryland, from English Language Arts to AP Biology to History and beyond. After piloting lessons and tailoring them to their own classrooms, teachers had overwhelmingly positive things to say about Land Talk.


Here are some brief highlights of what teachers loved about using Land Talk in their classrooms:


Based on the work of our teachers in piloting this curriculum, we also have a few suggestions for teachers planning to use Land Talk in their classrooms:
