Mapping DR K-12 Project Activities to Climate and Environmental Literacy Principles - Steps Toward Leveraging Efforts and Broader Impacts


Presenters explore how DR K-12 projects address the Climate Literacy Essential Principles and Environmental Literacy Competencies and how that information can increase projects' effectiveness.

10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Session Type: 
PI-organized Discussion

The objectives of this session are for the group to map DR K–12 projects onto the Climate Literacy Essential Principles (CLEP) and Environmental Literacy Competencies (ELC) and to use that map to explore how to leverage all of the projects’ efforts both within the DR K–12 projects and in the larger community of climate and environmental education efforts. The session sets the stage for thinking about how DR K–12 projects address the CLEP and ELC with two brief presentations of these initiatives and examples of how specific projects align to them.
