Description

Introductory Remarks and Session Moderater

I will provide introductory remarks that describe the idea of Salish Sea Studies (S3) as a form of place-based education that immerses students in local heritage, cultures, and ecology. I will briefly outline the three integrated goals of S3: 1) student achievement; 2) community vitality, and 3) ecological integrity. I will conclude by setting out the proposition that S3 results in significant positive educational, community, and environmental benefits, thus setting the stage for each panel presenter to make this case.
