The Guidelines for Excellence is a series of materials to help environmental educators hone their practice and programs to national standards for high-quality EE programming. This workshop will focus on the K-12 Environmental Education Guidelines publication.This workshop is for educators (formal, nonformal, and higher education) want to learn more about:
- What environmental literacy is and how to explain the value of environmental literacy.
- What environmental literacy should look like by the end of grades 4, 8 and 12.
- How to connect these Guidelines to your EE instructional materials and NC curriculum standards.
