Legislating the Environment: Teaching Environmental History and Civics
Tuesday, April 21st 9:30AM-4PM
Registration fee: $25
Tsongas Industrial History Center
In partnership with the Tsongas Industrial History Center, we will explore the intersections of environmental history, science, and engineering. Chad Montrie, Professor at UMass Lowell, will provide an overview to the study of environmental history, particularly as it relates to New England industry. Teachers will examine primary sources and participate in hands-on activities with Tsongas Center staff drawn from their "Industrial Watershed" program. We will then discuss how to use this history to prepare students for thinking and acting on present-day environmental civic issues in their communities.
Note: This workshop will be taking place off-site at the Tsongas Industrial History Center in Lowell, MA.
This program is open to all who work with K-12 students. Teachers can earn 22.5 PDPs or 1 graduate credit with Worcester State University (for an additional fee).
