The ACNW Teacher Workshop is back for a fourth year! There’s so much learning to do we’ve got three days and two nights packed full. This year, the focus is on place-based learning. Every teacher will receive a copy of the book Place-Based Education: Connecting Classrooms and Communities by David Sobel. Over the course of the workshop we’ll dig into this approach to teaching that emphasizes connections among school, community, and environment. You’ll leave with plenty of hands-on training, a copy of either Project Learning Tree (K-5) or Project WILD (6-12) curriculum, a water quality test kit to use with your classroom, and ideas for writing in nature. You’ll connect with teachers in other ACNW schools who are finding new and innovative ways to create environmentally literate students. We are looking forward to another great workshop!
ACNW expects that each school will send at least one teacher. ACNW will cover the cost (meals and lodging) of up to two teachers. Additional attendees may participate as space allows at $225/person. Pre-registration is required. Register online at this link.
