Project Learning Tree has released a new high school curriculum, â€œExploring Environmental Issues: Focus on Forestsâ€.
This curriculum integrates teaching about forests into a multitude of subject areas using hands-on classroom studies and outdoor field investigations.
Project Learning TreeÂ® (PLT) is a program of the American Forest Foundation that provides educators with peer-reviewed, award-winning environmental education curriculum resources that can be integrated into lesson plans for all grades and subject areas.
â€œPLT helps teachers incorporate a hands-on approach to learning core subject matter and basic skills by exploring complex, real-world environmental issues,â€ says Kathy McGlauflin, Director of Project Learning Tree. â€œFocus on Forests investigates the profound changes occurring in North American forests today, and students apply what they learn to their own community investigations.â€
Focus on Forests is a 176-page guide that helps teachers provide students with meaningful experiences related to classroom content.
