Teacher Professional Growth Plans

Weaving the "E" into your tEaching!

Engaging students in authentic environmental education, inquiries, and projects is a powerful way to develop cross-curricular competencies and prepare students to create a sustainable future! As you develop your Teacher Professional Growth Plan (TPGP) this year and explore how you and your students can make a difference, we encourage you to weave in environmental education and their close cousins, energy and wellness education!

We've provided a list of ideas for your consideration to include in your TPGP and we've identified some resources that can help you with with your professional learning needs. 

Concepts for consideration:
  • Increasing students' environmental and energy literacy.
  • Providing students with meaningful authentic learning through environmental inquiry or environmental project-based learning.
  • Providing students with experiential learning in nature to create healthy connections with nature.
  • Using environmental, energy and wellness education to develop cross-curricular competencies to achieve engaged thinkers, ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit.
Resources to support your TPGP:
To help us promote professional learning opportunities and ensure we are offering what you need, please:
  • share exciting or innovative professional learning opportunities in environment, energy or wellness education 
  • share what other professional learning/resources you would like to support your TPGP in environment, energy or wellness education
