The Climate Ready Teacher Collaborative is a FREE, two-day teacher workshop and ongoing professional learning community that provides 4th-12th grade educators with the knowledge, resources, strategies, and support they need to help students build essential climate literacy skills, understand local impacts, and make a difference in their communities.

Learn how to integrate climate literacy, environmental justice, and service learning into your curriculum to help your students contribute to meaningful and equitable community resilience efforts. Participants will explore the changing planet with NOAA Science On a Sphere (SOS) technology, learn from resilience and sustainability professionals, and engage with our 2021 Climate Ready Student Ambassadors!

Workshop & PLC provided at no cost to participants. All participants receive free instructional resources ($100 value). Stipend of $150 available upon completion.   

ELIGIBILITY:

This professional development opportunity is a component of Climate READY (Climate Resilience Education & Action for Dedicted Youth), an FAU Pine Jog initiative made possible by a generous grant from the Environmental Literacy Program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Coordinated by FAU Pine Jog, the project focuses on six core communities in Palm Beach County that are among the most vulnerable to extreme weather and other environmental hazards: 

  • Riviera Beach
  • West Palm Beach
  • Lake Worth
  • Boynton Beach/Delray Beach
  • Boca Raton
  • Pahokee/Belle Glade

Participants must currently teach (or plan to teach in 2021-22 school year) at a school located in one of these six core communities. Priority is given to 4th-12th grade teachers at Title I schools.

Registration is limited to 24 teachers max. Additional teachers at non-Title I schools within the six core communities will initially be placed on a waiting list.

To participate, please REGISTER HERE. Registration deadline: June 25, 2021.  

For more information, please contact Lauren Butcher, Climate Ready Program Coordinator, at lbutcher2013@fau.edu or 561-686-6600.
