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. 

Use the outdoors to engage students and inspire the reading and writing process. Taking our classes outside on school grounds provides the opportunity for an immersive and inspired literacy experience. Activities provided are intended to be integrated into an existing balanced literacy model. Examples of activities include practicing use of sensory and figurative language, using observations for informational writing, word choice exercises, creating group poetry, and much more. The workshop will include time to apply new techniques to their existing plans and share ideas with others, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can integrate relevant lessons right away.

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.)
