Make Learning Fun
Project Learning Tree® (PLT) uses trees and forests as windows to the world to increase students’ understanding of the environment and actions they can take to conserve it. From its beginnings in 1976, PLT has exemplified high-quality environmental education and is a program of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.
PLT’s professional development helps educators learn how to integrate environmental education into their teaching and become comfortable teaching outdoors in urban, suburban, and rural environments. Workshops and online courses teach educators how best to use PLT’s instructional materials with their own students in their own setting and how to engage with (and draw upon) their community in learning about and taking action to address local environmental issues. Continuing education credits are available in most states.
In-person training include one-day workshops, in-service days, a series of classes spread throughout a semester, week-long institutes, and other sustained and intensive models. These events are planned and conducted by certified facilitators and customized for specific grade levels, topics, and teaching situations.
Tim Roberts, Agricenter’s Director of Education and UT Extension Agent is a certified facilitator. He wants to gauge interest to see who might be interested in a one-day workshop at Agricenter.
