The Graduate Program of Teton Science Schools is a unique combination of academic theory and practical educator training, all nestled in the southeastern corner of Grand Teton National Park. During the 11.5 month immersive program, students will focus on place-based, field science education and apply teaching skills in the field and in schools.
Our practices are guided by a close connection with other Teton Science Schools programs. This residency program is located on the Kelly Campus of Teton Science Schools, which provides an intentional learning community just 18 miles outside of historic Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The program combines traditional classroom learning with the invaluable experience of teaching a variety of diverse student groups. The classroom curriculum provides instruction and knowledge development through the lens of place-based education theories, while the ongoing teaching practica structures and cultivates student teaching methods under the guidance and close mentorship of faculty. The summer semester is the culminating experience of the Graduate Program, where students plan, instruct and assess a visiting school group. http://www.tetonscience.org/graduate-program/home
