Watershed for Every Classroom

Friday, January 11, 2019 (All day)
Watershed for Every Classroom is a year-long, supported professional development program for educators who teach in the Lake Champlain Basin. The stories of the Basin offer multiple ways to teach all subjects; engage students in learning in their community; and provide a way to integrate content, service, and a sense of belonging to one’s home place. We will explore how people, places, and things tell the stories of the Lake Champlain Basin and offer our students the opportunity to demonstrate an in-depth understanding of content, community engagement, and sense of place.
