Project Title & Description
Bridging the Gap
This project creates a link between pre-service education programs and placement of educators to ensure that new educators are able to apply environmental action strategies in their classrooms and to improve the quality of environmental education. To achieve this goal, we will launch a teacher mentorship program that places novice/pre-service environmental educators with experienced educator/mentors who use active classroom strategies. Novice/pre-service educators will use this approach in their classrooms to facilitate real-world stewardship projects that empower students to identify and address environmental issues in their communities.
