Opportunities

Clearing Magazine call for Submissions

CLEARING is a forum for sharing ideas, resources and perspectives on teaching for environmental literacy. We are seeking stories, research summaries, resource reviews (books and curriculum), and opinions from practitioners around the Pacific Northwest. THIS MEANS YOU! To make it easier, we have identified 8 primary themes that we hope will channel your energies and encourage you to submit an article:

THEMES FOR CLEARING 2016-17:
Outdoor Education / Children and Nature
Marine / Aquatic Education / Ocean Literacy
Teaching Climate Change
Place-based Education
School Gardens and Farm-to-School
Energy Education
Forest Education
Green Schools / Healthy Schools

Within all of these themes, we are looking for perspectives and opinions, success stories, ways to integrate the themes into the existing curriculum, best resources for teaching, and specific activities that you have found to be effective. We also encourage you to address issues of equity and diversity within these topics. After peer review, articles will be published and archived on the CLEARING website and will be considered for inclusion in one of the twice-yearly print editions in Spring or Fall.

UPCOMING DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: August 15, 2016
