This Workshop is intended for teaching K- 8. Project Learning Tree curriculum resources help educators teach complex environmental issues. They can be integrated into lesson plans for all grades and subject areas to help students learn how to make sound choices about the environment. PLT’s educational materials are designed to meet the common components of national education reform by using the constructivist approach to learning, whole language teaching, cooperative learning, inquiry-based teaching, service-learning, and authentic assessments. Materials are also correlated to state standards of learning. Participants will receive: the PLT Prek-8 Environmental Education Guide; correlations to the Virginia Standards of Learning; a certificate of participation stating your eligibility to receive 6 hours of recertification credit; and ideas and techniques to use the Project Learning Tree Guide with your students in and outside of the classroom.
The workshop is provided free as a service of NoVA Outside. It includes lunch. Registration is limited to the first 30 registrants.
