The Children's Environmental Literacy Foundation is bringing its longstanding Summer Institute to NYC and Los Angeles this year. The CELF Summer Institute provides curriculum design support for K-12 teachers to integrate sustainability into existing curricula aligned with NGSS standards. This year's theme is Incorporating Inquiry, Place and Action for Sustainable Schools.
Featured sessions will include:
GeoInquiry: training in National Geographic's process of using a geographic lens to analyze space, place and interconnections between humans and the natural world
Citizen Science: Incorporate place- and project-based learning to leverage expertise in your school community and develop student advocacy.
Ecological Literacy: Connect sustainability concepts and United Nations Global Goals to NGSS and STEM learning.
Whole Systems Change: Engage in activities that model systemic change for sustainability.
