Perhaps one of the biggest challenges to getting started with "greening" the curriculum is where to begin. Environmental education really can be a wonderful tool to bridge the disciplines and provide an engaging learning experience for students, but teachers may need support in feeling as though they have the foundation required to grow and learn with their students. Many teachers have found the online professional development courses provided by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point to be quite useful. Upcoming courses include "Foundations of Environmental Education" and "Making EE Relevant for Culturally Diverse Audiences". High school teachers can take these courses for free with a Classroom Earth Professional Development Grant. Applications are due soon (July 23), and can be accessed at: http://classroomearth.org/professional-development-grant-2010.
