Professional Development
Target Audience: 
Thursday, September 26, 2019 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Join us at this hands-on, cross-curricular professional development workshop with the Population Education open to K-5 educators.  The curriculum and the workshop seek to promote issue-based learning while also meeting state and national standards in a range of disciplines including science, social studies, mathematics, language arts and environmental education.  The curricula prepares the next generation for responsible global citizenship by encouraging students to think critically, problem solve, and make informed decisions about the world around them.  The workshop will provide educators with resources and strategies for teaching about human ecology and related social, environmental and economic issues.  Educators will receive 3 hours of Act 48 credit, a certification of completion, and an online curriculum access card with over 40 ready-to-go lesson plans.  In addition, the Global Studies Center will provide dinner and parking to registered participants.
