From Sunday, June 23 to Friday, June 28, 2019, Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire will host the fourth annual Exeter Environmental Literature Institute (ELI)—the only institute of its kind dedicated to the environmental humanities in secondary education. The week-long conference, offered in collaboration with ASLE, is designed to build and sustain a community of teachers working in the environmental humanities.
ELI offers an opportunity for teachers to deepen their pedagogy in ways that will nurture the next generation of environmentally attentive and literate students. The institute offers ideas and materials for participants to build courses and curricula as well as networking opportunities to foster ongoing professional development.
This summer’s Institute will feature a keynote address and workshop by author and educator Alison Hawthorne Deming. The 2019 ELI leadership team is ELI Director and Exeter English Faculty Member, Jason BreMiller; co-leader and Master Teacher in Residence Dr. Stephen Siperstein, from Choate Rosemary Hall; and co-leader and Master Teacher in Residence Dr. Rochelle Johnson, from the College of Idaho. We hope that you will consider joining us in June!
