With increasing interest in linked learning and national common core standards, K-12 schools are beginning to focus more real-world application and careers. California’s landmark Education and the Environment (EEI) curriculum offers a unique and powerful tool to make these connections and to develop environmental literacy within the context of existing curriculum requirements.
This K-12 curriculum is formally approved by the State Board of Education for use in classrooms statewide. It contains 85 individual units that are aligned to more than 100 selected Science and History-Social Science academic content standards, while supporting English Language Arts standards for Kindergarten through 12th grade.
The EEI Curriculum is poised to implement and has the potential to:
• increase environmental literacy
The Green Curriculum Institute at the 2011 Green California Schools Summit will be a day-long event, developed in partnership with the California Environmental Protection Agency (the agency responsible for development of the EEI materials) and devoted to helping teachers understand how they can effectively use the rich collection of EEI resources.
Curriculum specialists and teachers will become familiar with all elements of the EEI Units, and learn how many of these elements can be incorporated in their current curriculum even if they are not yet ready or do not wish to use a Unit in its entirety.
Who Should Attend?
• Teachers with an interest in incorporating sustainability concepts, principles and practices in their curriculum
