Are you interested in teaching other educators (preservice and in-service) about environmental literacy and how it develops across the grade bands? We've created a workshop module that facilitates online exploration of NAAEE's publication K-12 Environmental Education: Guidelines for Excellence. This set of guidelines was developed to support state and local environmental education efforts by setting expectations for performance and achievement in grades 4, 8, and 12. The online resources provide a step-by-step outline for designing a virtual short course that can be adapted to your needs.

The Coastal Resilience Education Toolkit is an interactive learning guide that consists of seven activities, all built on the idea that experiential learning is the best way to build a relationship between students and the urban marine environment surrounding them. These activities, full of games, experiments, and pre-recorded content, can work in-sequence with one another, or stand on their own, depending on the needs and abilities of your students. Each lesson plan consists of an overview of the activity, list of materials, detailed procedures, post-activity recommendations for further learning, and background for educators.
