CESA #4 is excited once again to partner with The Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education in providing a variety of professional learning opportunities to enhance the integration of environmental education into existing curricula across all content disciplines. Each workshop utilizes standards-based activities to advance place-based resources to engage learners. Each workshop is 7 hours and will include collaboration and curriculum planning time. All workshop participants will receive ready-to-use hands-on lesson and numerous supporting resources. Teachers will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education upon successful completion of each workshop. All workshops support schools in their Green and Healthy Schools Wisconsin initiatives. 

Wisconsin’s new Standards for Science and the Next Generation Science Standards both encourage a multifaceted approach to teaching and learning. This more holistic view also mirrors many of the goals of environmental education, making the environment a great context for learning science. In this workshop, we will dissect lessons from Project Learning Tree’s Environmental Education Activity Guide and look for the crosscutting concepts, disciplinary core ideas, and science practices they contain. We will then take the next step of connecting these lessons to your existing curriculum to help create well-rounded science units that are ready for the upcoming school year.

Cost: $150 per person (Districts with #310 tech seats may use "1" seat per person to cover the registration fee. Please indicate this in the registration notes.)
