Look out for the return of FIT+ to SFREC in the upcoming year!
- Author: Shayna Foreman
FIT+ participants receive a Project WET Professional Development Certificate and take home a K-12 Activity Guide with over 90 interdisciplinary activities designed to complement existing curricula and support current and emerging standards. In addition to modeling Project WET activities, the workshop agenda includes talks from science experts and natural resource professionals, visits to unique local sites, and discussions of lesson-planning, Common Core, and NGSS. The training is designed for classroom teachers and non-formal educators who work with youth. We will spend as much time as possible outdoors!
Where: UC Sierra Foothill Research and Extension Center, 8279 Scott Forbes Road, Browns Valley, CA 95918 (map)
Cost: Choose on-site, $70, for on-site shared dormitory accommodations Saturday night and four meals (lunch and dinner Saturday, breakfast and lunch Sunday); choose off-site, $60, for four meals and no lodging.
Why come to FIT+? 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!
Please share this event with your colleagues—we welcome both graduates and prospective participants of our Forestry Institute for Teachers!
