This EEI Curriculum training is offered at no charge for teachers. Join CalRecycle to learn how the standards-based and environment-based EEI Curriculum teaches selected Science and History-Social Science standards to mastery. The EEI also solidly addresses California English Language Arts standards (K-3), as well as California Common Core standards for ELA and Literacy (K-12).
Sign up to attend and you’ll receive a complimentary DVD when you complete the training. Plus, complimentary printed units with classroom sets of student materials will be offered to all attendees. You can preview the units at www.CaliforniaEEI.org at any time. They can also be downloaded for free in PDF format – your district does not have to purchase the EEI Curriculum.
There are 85 EEI Curriculum units that cover more than 100 academic content standards for grades K-12, and the EEI uses the environment as a context for learning. Unique features of the EEI include in-depth Teacher Editions to help you teach the standards to mastery, and California-specific case studies help students learn about the environment and important issues right here in California.
“To watch students engage with the natural world and make new intellectual connections as a result of their learning is educational gold.” Ms. Wendy Weller, 2nd Grade
So sign up now and join in for a 2-hour professional development session to learn how you can use the environment to teach the standards to mastery!
EEI Trainings at the Academy are made possible by the generous support of Friends of Environmental Education.
