Check it Out: Grant Opportunity!

Grant Name: Classroom Earth Professional Development Grants

Funded by: National Environmental Education Foundation

Description: Environmental education benefits students - increasing their understanding of how earth's resources and natural systems work, offering opportunities for hands-on activities and inquiry-based learning and providing practical information about how to succeed in the green economy.In order for students to receive meaningful environmental education, it is critical that their teachers have the necessary skills and knowledge. Essential to a teacher’s ability to serve in this role as environmental educator is not only an understanding of environmental concepts and issues, but familiarity with the newest strategies and best practices for integrating these concepts into their established cirriculum. Whether a teacher focuses on science, math or social studies, environmental education can provide experiences that link what they are learning to their local environment. Classroom Earth supports teachers around the country who want to make environmental education part of their curriculum. Classroom Earth's 2010 Professional Development Grants enable applicants to take two online courses, creating a strong foundation in environmental education. These courses are offered by the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point through the Environmental Education and Training Partnership (EETAP). With these courses, teachers are better equipped to bring the environment into the classroom and connect students with their natural surroundings.
