The Battle River Watershed Alliance invites secondary school teachers in the sciences, social sciences and language arts to attend this Professional Development day. Using Watersheds for Project-Based Learning will be held on Monday November 25th from 9am to 3pm at the Stoney Creek Centre in Camrose.
This PD session will include a holistic lesson on the science and social science of our local watersheds. Teachers of all backgrounds will benefit from receiving up-to-date information on our local ecology and communities. Event facilitators will use the Caring for our Watershed program as an example of successful project-based learning. Attendees will hear from a local teacher on how their school has incorporated the Caring for our Watersheds program across several areas of study, creating an engaging and rewarding learning experience for students. Inside Education will be attending as a guest speaker to share other water-based educational resource materials and discuss advantages of using them in the classroom.
There is no cost to attend this PD session. Travel and supply teacher funding is available based on need. Lunch will also be provided.
To register or for more information, please contact Nathalie Stanley at the Battle River Watershed Alliance at 780-672-0276 or by email at email@example.com. We encourage you to invite several teachers of different backgrounds to attend this PD day to initiate the cross-curricular, project based learning opportunity this session will offer.
