Teaching the Environment is a week-long intensive environmental studies program for educators working with children in early childhood, elementary, and middle school settings. Set on the banks of the Hudson River in downtown Yonkers at the Center for the Urban River at Beczak and Sarah Lawrence College campus, this collaborative program will have an interdisciplinary curriculum including hands-on workshops and field trips to Hudson River community-based organizations. This year’s theme will be Discovering Urban Landscapes and feature experiential workshops ranging from the arts to physical and social sciences. Participants will receive a certificate with in-service credit hours. Upon successful completion of the program and final written project, participants will receive one graduate credit in Art of Teaching.
