Calling All Educators ~<br>Join in A Watershed for Every Classroom 2010-11
Watershed for Every Classroom" is a year-long professional development experience for educators in the Lake Champlain Basin (Vermont, New York and Quebec), brought to you by the Champlain Basin Education Initiative of which LCC is a member. It offers teachers inspiration, knowledge and skills to frame exciting place-based curriculum and teach lake science and stewardship. At the heart of this approach is the belief that students who are immersed in interdisciplinary study of their home community are more likely to engage in stewardship. Educator workshops will be held in July and October 2010 and February and May 2011.
The course fee is $400, payable during the course. Participating teachers will receive $100 for classroom resources and an opportunity to apply for a $200 mini-grant. Five optional graduate credits are available for an additional $1,000 from St. Michael's College. Check out the brochure flier for further details.
