California Environmental Literacy Project Online Workshop
October 24, 2020
8am - 3pm
Environmental Literacy Project is a community of practice of educators across the five counties in region 6 (Amador, Calaveras, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tuolumne). For the past two years teachers have had an opportunity to deepen their understanding of how to implement environmental literacy in their teaching by including environmental issues in classroom lessons; providing students with more outdoor and hands-on learning; practicing sustainability by utilizing recycling programs, composting, and sustainable food practices; and engaging and partnering with local community-based organizations to create a rich, place-based context for environmental literacy development. Read more about the first year here and the second year here (page 18-20).
