Sustainability Course: Information Session
Attention Formal High School Educators!
Join us to learn more about an exciting nine-week pilot starting in February 2021! The Pacific Education Institute has developed a semester-long course with the purpose of refining students’ critical and creative thinking skills around the complexities of sustainability, climate change, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Students will analyze solution trade-offs in terms of people, planet, and prosperity, and complete this course by presenting a climate change solution that includes consideration of all those components, as well as environmental and/or climate justice. They will communicate the science behind their solution to their peers and/or the public in terms that are understandable and actionable. The course is aligned with NGSS, Common Core ELA, and WA State ESE standards.
We are looking to form a cohort of 5-6 formal educators, statewide, that have the capacity and interest to commit to the professional development, implementation, and evaluation of this pilot. Although the course is a semester long, we will be piloting nine weeks of the curriculum. One payment stipend will be dispersed to each formal educator within the cohort at the completion of the nine-week pilot.
These information sessions* on October 13 and 14 are an opportunity for formal high school educators who are interested in piloting a new Sustainability Course to gain information on the course itself, requirements of the pilot, and have any additional questions answered.
*Educators only need to attend one info session.
