Ev/Ar230 Nature Journaling 4 credits
Nature Journaling is designed to teach students to focus on the study of nature through direct experience while developing a number of skill disciplines. The course offers a direct laboratory field study experience for students to connect to, observe, question, record, document, research and express the scientific, as well as the aesthetic aspects of nature. Each student produces a significant nature journal of writing, recording and visual art that demonstrates their study, learning and research of the natural world. Other projects in reading-responding, writing and presentation are added to enhance the experience of nature study. Students choose from one of two academic tracks: environmental science or art both having different standards with regard if empirical knowledge.
