Oct 16: No Student Left Inside workshop

No Student Left Inside Workshop – The Pennsylvania Association of Environmental Educators (PAEE) along with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is sponsoring a FREE all-day workshop with a focus on getting students outdoors. The day will start with an introduction and short presentations by the Game Commission, Fish and Boat Commission, and PAEE outlining the resources available for classrooms, non formal educators, and homeschoolers. Each will also preview the outdoor activities they will model that day. The group (about 100) will break into three sections. Everyone will rotate through the three hour-long OUTDOOR sessions. (Dress appropriately for the weather.) At these sessions they will learn exciting (but easy to use) activities they can do outside with students. Workshop includes a year’s membership in PAEE, a 5% discount to attend the PAEE annual conference, March 17-19,2011 near Ligonier, and 6 Act 48 hours if needed.

The day will culminate with keynote speaker, Jane Kirkland. Jane is a dynamic and knowledgeable author whose books are directed at taking students outdoors. Her website is www.takeawalk.com .

This workshop will be held at The Environmental Charter School at Frick Park, 829 Milton Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15218. Visit www.paee.net to register. Space is limited. rroperti@zoominternet.net
