Project Learning Tree: Carbon and Climate E-Unit

AFF_PLT_eUnit_COVERS_colorbarsMAEOE is excited to offer Project Learning Tree’s E-Unit: Carbon and Climate. This full day workshop counts as PD for the MAEOE Green School Application. In the morning, participants will go over guidelines of the MAEOE MD Green School application.  During the afternoon, participants will participate in Project Learning Tree’s: Carbon and Climate  E-Unit. Perhaps more than any other environmental issue, the topic of climate change challenges science teachers to accurately convey data, reveal assumptions, and engage critical-thinking skills. The Carbon & Climate E-Unit provides activities and resources to help educators meet these challenges, introducing students to some of the complex issues involved in climate change.

Dates will be announced in early August. Participation in this PD will also allow educators to apply for PLT’s GreenWorks Grants.
