Spring 2014 webinar series: Connecting Your Classroom With the World
Rainforest Alliance Education Program launches its 2014 webinar series “Connecting Your Classroom with the World”. Each webinar consists of a 30 minute presentation, followed by 10 minutes of Q&A. These webinars provide participants an in-depth look at our curricula, resources, and methods for implementation in the classroom. Following each webinar, participants receive an email with the helpful resources discussed that bring these lessons to life with your students.
We will be gathering a diverse audience of educators and concerned citizens to join the discussion and learn more about our free, online resources, and hope to have you join the conversation!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Lindsay Clark, the Education Program Coordinator, by email at LClark@ra.org.
