Going to the AWLS was one of the greatest trainings I feel I have been to in a long time.

As a teacher of Technology and of Hunter safety I feel the training gave me many ideas to bring back to share in the schools and in other fields where I am teaching students.

Let me start with the Staff. The staff at AWLS were very welcoming with large amounts of knowledge and very open in sharing anything they had knowledge on. They started the class with a great introduction and would bring their strengths to the room. They would support each other combining their strengths to make the class very successful.

As I reflect on the time I had a AWLS I think about how the organization of the information given was in such an order that it made it easy to understand and to relate to the topic they were teaching. I also enjoyed the way they taught the classes. they would go through the instruction and ideas behind the class and then we would go out into either the outdoors or the in the classroom and implement what we had been taught. After this they would have a wrap up class, so to speak, to reaffirm what we had learned. They team work they implemented was also a great lesson for the group. They would change the groups up all the time so we would be working with other people so we would get to know everyone by the time we were done.

The guest speakers were another great asset. They were very knowledgeable were so willing to share what they had done in the area we were learning about. They would build on the class we had taken bringing in more information for us to process and use.

All of the information they had for us to choose was another benefit that added to the class. They had a variety of teaching materials around the teachers could choose from and take home to use in the school they work at. This choice not only gave the teacher a wide variety to use but also helps with lesson plans for the future. This is a great asset as with so much information it could be easy to forget all of your ideas a teacher just has to look in the materials and it all of the ideas come flowing back onto the mind to use in the class.

The group from our school is now planning a summer lesson for students using the information we have learned from AWLS. We have already found a location willing to allow us the time on their land and it

includes a creek and a pond in which to get teach students how to measure the flow of a creek and then find the insects that use it as a habitat. We are then going to tie flies to match the creek insects as best as we can. We are also currently working on getting the kit from the NASP program to bring into the schools. The archery would give the students another way to spend quality time learning an activity Working with the National fish Hatcheries and the local Division Of Wildlife. We are hoping to bring in the local fish eggs and having a class unit based around the growth of the eggs to fish and when they are the size to be released taking them to the nearest lake.

Thank You for a training I shall never forget and am excited to use.

Safari Club International & Denver Sables,

I want to thank you for the unique opportunity to attend the American Wilderness Leadership School in Wyoming. I gained a lot of skills for integrating outdoor education and science into my regular school classroom. I feel far more prepared with specific activities for teaching children and collaborating with the other teachers who also attended the camp. I intend on sharing my materials and activities I learned with the other teacher in my building, therefore sharing what I learned.

The AWLS camp was definitely the highlight of my summer, making it booth an intellectually stimulating and growing experience. These experiences have a special place in my heart forever! Thanks you!
