CLEO Teachers Climate Across the Curriculum Workshop
August 4 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.”
– Malala Yousafzai
Welcome K-12 teachers! Our 2021 professional development Climate Across the Curriculum Workshop for teachers is now open for registration, with new resources for elementary educators! Climate-Ready Classrooms will help K-12 teachers understand climate change, its impacts, and solutions to be able to incorporate climate into their curriculum. Attendees will receive a short climate overview presentation, including the latest data covering common areas of miscommunication. A series of lightning talks will highlight strategies and resources for teachers, as well as the intersection of climate issues, equity, and justice.
Following this, CLEO staff will lead an interactive workshop to guide educators on creating an action plan for their classroom lessons. Educators will be asked to select the classroom units that they are most excited to teach in the upcoming school year and will complete activities to brainstorm ways to creatively incorporate climate science into these units.
At the end of the workshop, attendees will receive resources to help in their action plans, such as standards-aligned lesson plans created by The CLEO Institute, worksheets for further brainstorming, and instructions on requesting CLEO climate presentations for their classrooms. Miami-Dade County teachers will be provided with PD hours, and all teachers will receive a certificate of completion with hours to submit to their school districts.
**** Attention All MDCPS teachers: please register in the MyLearningPlan website before all PD’s. From https://www3.dadeschools.net/home, log into the Employee Portal, then choose Apps/Services/Sites, and then click on PDMS for the Professional Development Management Plan. *****
We will raffle off for $50 gift cards toward school supplies, and each person that you refer to the workshop earns you an extra entry!
