Courses and Training

Make the Grade

To apply as a Maryland Green School, one of the objectives requires professional development for 10% of the teaching staff (objective 1.2.2). Throughout the year, MAEOE offers courses and training to help meet this requirement.

PLT's Carbon and Climate

  • Course Description

    Perhaps more than any other environmental issue, the topic of Climate Change challenges teachers to accurately convey data, navigate assumptions, and engage critical-thinking skills. The Project Learning Tree's Carbon & Climate E-Unit provides activities  and resources to help educators meet these challenges by introducing students to some of the complex issues involved in climate change.

    This 3 hour long course will give educators the information and  resources necessary to communicate carbon and climate issues through hands-on and engaging activities that help teach students how – not what – to think about the environment and their place within it. They also make teaching and learning fun. The unit is align with NGSS standards. Educators will participate in lessons from the Project Learning Tree Carbon and Climate e-unit which is designed for students in grades 6-8.

    Please note, this course will count for PD credit on the MAEOE MD Green School Application.
