Classroom Earth is supporting middle and high school teachers around the country who are eager to make wildlife conservation part of their curriculum. Classroom Earth's 2012 Professional Development Grants will enable applicants to take one six-week online course offered by the Wildlife Conservation Society to create a strong foundation in wildlife conservation. Participating teachers will be better equipped to bring wildlife conservation into the classroom, facilitate scientific learning and to connect students with their natural surroundings. This Classroom Earth grant opportunity will also support teachers to earn graduate level credit.
Classroom Earth received very positive feedback about last year’s courses. According to one teacher, “I really enjoyed my course, Conservation Biology for Educators. I found everything relevant to what I teach, and can use it in many different classes.”
The application deadline is April 30, 2012.
