Integrating Sustainability Science into the Classroom
It is a professional development course offered by the Sustainability Science Education Project at Arizona State University. Anyone in the GNSD network through December 2018 can receive $75 dollars off at registration with the code STAYSHARP75. The course normally costs $200.
Integrating Sustainability Science into the Classroom aims to cultivate the skills and strategies necessary for incorporating sustainability science topics across common PreK-12th-grade curricula. The goal is to create crosswalk opportunities for making sustainability science relevant in subjects such as English Language Arts, Literacy, History, Social Studies, Early Education, Science, Art, Drama, and Mathematics. Educators will learn about the history of sustainability, what sustainability is, explore sustainability topics, learn how to mobilize the Four Ways of Thinking framework, and how to connect sustainability to their curriculum in this all online course. Educators are encouraged to work with existing materials, lesson plans, or units to infuse sustainability ideas. For those that are particularly ambitious, they can start from scratch and create new materials for their students. Educators will have the opportunity to connect state standards to big sustainability topics. The goal of this course is to prepare PreK-12th-grade educators to advance the next generation of scientifically literate and globally-minded citizens ready to tackle any challenge and connect with other educators who are interested in the same goals. Upon completion, educators earn 15 recertification hours through Arizona State University, and the AZ and CA Departments of Education.
