LIFE Mid-year Portfolio Review (January 3, 2005)

Staff from the Office of Environmental Education will work with teachers and LIFE site coordinators to conduct an initial review of student portfolios. The purpose of the mid-year review is twofold: 1) to work with teachers to make portfolios an effective assessment tool, and 2) to provide feedback to students on how they can document and reflect on their learning (see LIFE Professional Development Calendar for details).

LIFE Field Experience Checklist

In order to make sure all necessary preparations for the field days are completed, we have prepared a short checklist [pdf] for the lead teacher at each participating school.

Workshop for Potential LIFE Program Leaders (January 25 and 26, 2005)

The Office of Environmental Education will conduct a two-day workshop on how to develop a LIFE Program for potential LIFE Program Leaders. The workshop will be held at the Guana ?
