Implement Meaningful Watershed Education in Your Classroom! Are you a Pennsylvania K-12 teacher passionate about bringing relevant and real watershed education into your classroom? Learn how to implement Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) to advance environmental literacy and stewardship while increasing standards-based student achievement. MWEEs are learner-centered experiences in which students investigate local environmental issues and complete informed action projects.
These hybrid (online and face-to-face) workshops will help you plug existing activities and lessons into the MWEE instructional framework. While becoming Certified MWEE Teacher Ambassadors, you will discover partnerships with EE providers in your region, participate in planning discussions, and sample watershed education activities. Environmental education providers are also welcome to attend.
Earn 6 Act 48 credits in the face-to-face workshop! Please complete the MWEE 101 online course prior to the workshop to receive 3 additional Act 48 credits. Find the MWEE 101 online course here.
BONUS! All attending educators will receive instructional materials at the workshop. One attending school district will WIN a $500 stipend for instructional materials, and four others will receive $250! If funding is needed to cover a substitute teacher so you may attend the workshop, please indicate so on the registration form. Click here to register.
