Community Action in the Classroom Professional Development Workshop
July 16, 2018 - July 18, 2018$300
The AWSM Community Action in the Classroom project is a collaboration between the AWSM program and Earth Force. This professional development opportunity is for formal and informal educators who want to integrate civic and environmental action into their classroom.
Participants will learn Save Our Streams stream monitoring protocols and supporting standards-based curriculum that will have students engaging in fun, hands-on citizen-science.
Participants will also learn Earth Force’s Community Action and Problem Solving Process, a six-step model that combines the best of civic engagement, environmental education, and STEM. Youth work together through educator facilitation to design and implement a project to explore root causes and address a policy or practice related to the environmental issue that they identify in their community. Earth Force’s focus on civic engagement helps learners to become active participants in their communities by conducting balanced research, building strong community partnerships, and making decisions as a democratic group.
Cost is $300 and includes room, board and materials.
Scholarships are available for WV educators.
Guests (spouse, children, friend, etc) are invited to attend for the discounted rate of $65/person.
3 continuing education graduate credit hours are available through Marshall University for an additional $365.
