GLIN==> Ecology of Isle Royale for Teachers June 17-23



A few spaces are still available for the June 17-23, 2007 Ecology of Isle Royale course for teachers, offered by the Isle Royale Institute and Michigan Tech University. Course information and registration form are attached.

This one-week, field-based camping experience in Isle Royale National Park focuses on ecological concepts, wilderness ethics, and cultural history through direct experience, observation, and discussion. The interactive course is designed to provide elementary, middle, and high school educators with standards-based professional development and time to plan, discuss, and reflect on their teaching. Participants work in groups, learning and sharing their teaching experience and ideas with other educators. The course includes five nights of wilderness camping and backpacking, visits with researchers, and explorations of cultural sites and a variety of terrestrial and aquatic habitats, and incorporates the latest research in the park.
