LAUSD Professional Development Workshop: “The River Runs Through It – Charles Lummis and the Culture of the Arroyo Seco” scheduled for two Saturdays, October 13 and 27, 2018 – Registration is now open.

Since 2006, The professional development workshop has been taken by 240 teachers grades kindergarten through 12, in an educational experience that encourages the use of experiential learning to help foster community through a sense of place.

Conducted by retired LAUSD teacher, Carmela Gomes, the workshop has expanded the professional staff to include retired Mercyhurst University professor, Keiko Miller and master Franklin High School teacher, Yim Tam.

The place-based education workshop involves the participation of Wilderness Way Magazine, the Arroyo Seco Foundation, the Audubon Center at Debs Park, the Department of Recreation and Parks, Friends of the Los Angeles River, Highland Park Heritage Trust, The Autry Museum of the American West and the Tongva/Gabrielino and the Chumash/Tatavia Tribes.

During the course of the two days, participants walk in the wilds of the Arroyo Seco River, visit the native plant garden maintained by the National Park Service at the Audubon Center, tour the Lummis Home and Garden with a docent, experience the Los Angeles River in new ways with Friends of the Los Angeles River, take part in a walking tour of historic homes in the Sycamore Grove community, learn about the work of Charles Lummis as an archaeologist in Peru at the Southwest Museum and sit with holders of Tongva and Chumash traditions for a hands-on workshop.

To receive one point credit for the workshop, teachers are required to use the information they acquire to create lessons for their classrooms that reflect the concept of a sense of place and to support the common core curriculum for their discipline.

Registration is $85.00 per participant and closes on October 6, 2018
