In this K-12 Teacher Training Workshop, Miami-Dade K12 teachers will learn about and apply pedagogical strategies and tools that can be used to enhance their teaching practice around environmental sciences. The workshop will be led by four professors (two from LACC and two guest speakers), who will approach critical topics connected to environmental and sustainability issues in Brazil and in tropical forests. FIU and guest Faculty will present topics illustrated by case studies, followed by practical exercises to be carried out by the K-12 teachers. Teachers will present on their mini-projects or exercises, and reflect on how these tools can enhance their interdisciplinary practice to integrate STEM to address complex environmental problems.

Workshop is open to K-12 teachers from Miami-Dade County Public Schools and is eligible for Master Plan Points.

Registration is available through the MDCPS System.
