PBS Webinar April 5 at 8:00 p.m. EDT

NAMTC Members and your classroom teachers may be interested in a FREE webinar that PBS Teachers has scheduled for April 5. The producer of Earth Days, a production of the prestigious American Experience organization, along with Sean Miller of Earth Day Network, and Staci Sinclair, who wrote curriculum for a great new program PBS has called Growing Greener Schools, will discuss the programs plus preview some science and social studies curriculum.

Monday, April 5 at 8 p.m. EDT: Join PBS producers and education experts for a webinar celebrating the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. Participants will learn about two new projects from PBS: Earth Days, a film about the history of the modern environmental movement, and Growing Greener Schools, a project focused on incorporating green ideas into both school buildings and classroom curriculums. Presenters will preview both films and provide an overview of associated educational resources.
