Professional Development


August 1 - 5: Teaching the Environment: Discovering Urban Landscapes and Watersheds

Teaching the Environment is a 5-day intensive, small-group-based, experiential, place-based professional development program for teachers in early childhood through high school settings, both formal and informal, who are interested in further developing the environmental studies and environmental science components of their work with children and teens. Set on the banks of the Hudson River in downtown Yonkers at the Sarah Lawrence College Center for the Urban River at Beczak, this collaborative program has an interdisciplinary curriculum including hands-on workshops and field trips to Hudson River community-based organizations. Under the theme of Discovering Urban Landscapes and Watersheds, the program will feature experiential workshops ranging from the arts to physical and social sciences.
