We’re delighted to announce the release of our book “On the Pathway,” that tells the story of weaving Pathway Landmarks into every child’s life. Full of pictures, ideas, and words of wisdom from participants, it’s an inspiring account of one community’s journey to raise healthy kids for a healthy planet.
This manual, written by Jacob Rodenburg of Camp Kawartha, guides educators in building their skills and comfort in facilitating magical outdoor learning with their students. It helps educators view their school ground and nearby green spaces as an extension of their classrooms.
It explains strategies, activities and classroom management techniques to make outdoor learning meaningful and relevant to all students.
This is the original publication compiling all the community and literature-based research that led to the development of the Pathway Landmarks. It contains grounding principles, Landmark activities, participants and interviewees as well as a comprehensive review of Ontario curriculum links for all 30 Landmarks.
Surveys completed by participants resulted in a comprehensive Pilot Community Survey Report, released in the fall of 2019. This report indicates considerable interest in increasing outdoor and Landmark-linked activities both at home and at school, and a widespread need for sharing ideas and skills. The community-wide rollout of the project was guided by the results of these surveys.
