Event Description

Join us for the afternoon and receive training in Project Learning Tree's new 6th-8thgrade online e-unit. Perhaps more than any other environmental issue, the topic of climate change challenges science teachers to accurately convey data, reveal assumptions, and engage critical-thinking skills. The Carbon & Climate e-unit provides activities and resources to help educators meet these challenges, introducing students to some of the complex issues involved in climate change.

PLT's new e-units are constructed around the Next Generation Science Standards, aligned with Common Core and the C3 Framework, and organized in a 5E instructional model. These cutting-edge teaching and learning tools help you integrate hands-on, student-centered experiences into your curriculum. Read read more about the e-units online.

Participants in this workshop will receive access to the online e-unit and a copy of PLT's K-8 Environmental Education Activity Guide, as well as access to an online training module to refer to in the future. Thanks to a grant, the cost of this training has been reduced from $75 to $25.

Half-day substitute stipends are available! To register, email Nicole Filizetti
