Project Learning Tree workshop success

In a partnership with the Alabama Forestry Association, the AUM College of Education hosted a Project Learning Tree (PLT) workshop for classroom and future teachers. PLT is a forestry-focused conservation education program for K-12 educators and their students. The Alabama Forestry Association staff, along with staff from the Alabama Department of Education, conducted the half-day professional development for our education majors and local classroom teachers. PLT uses trees and forests as windows on the world to increase students’ understanding of the environment and actions they can take to conserve it.

From its beginning in 1976, PLT has exemplified high-quality environmental education. Attendees of the workshop participated in a variety of activities from the PLT Curriculum guide, which was provided to all of the participants at the workshop. They left the professional development with new knowledge and teaching strategies that they are eager to share with their future students.
