Workshop Opportunity: Rethinking Green

rethinking-greenThe Professional Learning Committee is pleased to welcome Sue Continelli, who will be presenting Rethinking Green.

Rethinking Green is an after-school workshop designed to provide practical strategies, resources and curriculum connections that support environmental education and sustainable practices in the classroom and the community. The workshop was developed in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute and Learning for a Sustainable Future.

The goals of the workshop are:

  • To help teachers gain a deeper understanding of the importance of environmental education and sustainable practices connected to the classroom and the community;
  • To effectively integrate environmental education through cross-curricular connections; and
  • To explore strategies, activities and resources to turn ideas into action in the classroom, on the school yard and in the local community

The workshop will take place Tuesday December 9, 2014 from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm, at our local office (130 Highland Rd East, Kitchener).  Registration is limited.   A light meal will be provided. Childcare subsidy available upon request.
