Join us for FIT+ (Forestry Institute for Teachers PLUS), a two-day workshop that provides training in K-12 environmental educationand special access to guest experts and unique California sites. All participants receive Project WET certification and a FREE K-12 curriculum guide. In addition to water and forestry topics, locally relevant topics may include watershed conservation, fire ecology, urban forestry and more! The training is designed for formal and non-formal educators who work with youth.
With the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the recent publication of California's Blueprint for Environmental Literacy, and the impending implementation of Next Generation Science Standards, Project WET is a valuable resource for bringing environmental education into the classroom and for bringing students outside. The award-winning curriculum guide, recommended by NSTA, provides flexible and interdisciplinary activities for all K-12 grade levels and subject areas, supporting current and emerging learning standards. Project WET makes a great addition to any educator's toolkit!
FIT+ sessions are coming up in October (Yuba County), November (San Luis Obispo County), and January (Orange County). Scroll down to view the flyer or open the attached PDF and register at www.forestryinstitute.org/education.
