Incorporating environmental education into school curriculum
Sustainable Claremont will host its next dialog on Monday, April 17 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. with a discussion titled “Planting Seeds of Hope: Education Rooted in the Environment.”
The talk, led by Gerald Lieberman, will take place in Room 101, Hahn Building, 420 Harvard Ave., Claremont.
Mr. Lieberman will explore ways the community support Claremont schools as they continue to infuse environmental education into the curriculum. Mr. Lieberman has planned and led the development of the EIC Model (Environment as Integrative Context for Improving Student Learning) adopted by California and in use nationwide. The EIC directly addresses this challenge and can be an inspiration for our community.
Dr. Lieberman is the principal author of Closing the Achievement Gap: Using the Environment as an Integrating Context for Learning, a groundbreaking, national study that received an award from the National Environmental Education Foundation for “bringing environmental learning into the mainstream of American K-12 education.”
