The College of Agriculture, Food Science and Sustainable Systems at Kentucky State University will host the Interdisciplinary Environmental Education (EE) Training for High School Teachers June 17-18.

The goal of this free training is to explore methods of teaching environmental education in interdisciplinary settings and for teachers across content areas to learn more about how they can meet standards requirements while teaching about the environment.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Climate Change 101 and resources for teaching across content areas
  • teacher resource sharing and best practices for implementing EE in the classroom
  • Project Learning Tree instructor certification in secondary level modules
  • overview of EE practice in the classroom and how to meet educational standards

Representatives from the Kentucky Division of Air Quality, the Kentucky Association for Environmental Education and the Kentucky Environmental Education Council will assist.

Room and board, materials, mileage and a $50 stipend will be paid for 15 participants through this initiative, which has been funded by the College of Agriculture, Food Science and Sustainable Systems at KSU, as well as through PRIDE Grant funds from the Kentucky Environmental Education Council.
