Audubon Nature Institute in conjunction with the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University cordially invites you to attend the Rescuing the Rainforest Teacher Workshop.

This new professional development opportunity will focus on logging in the South American rainforest and its impacts on that fragile habitat. Activities will incorporate different sciences as well as other subjects including: environmental science, cultural components, anthropology, computer science and technology. While it is geared for middle and high school teachers, this workshop is open to all educators formal and informal. The workshop will also showcase how teachers can incorporate the phenomenon based learning techniques required by the new LA State Science Standards into their classroom instruction. Rescuing the Rainforest Teacher Workshop is a great way to learn how to bring real world science into your classroom.
