Visits to a redwood park, particularly as children, have traditionally nurtured support for redwood forest conservation. If people experience the majesty and ecological complexity of the redwoods, they hopefully will be inspired to support redwood forest protection. These direct experiences may also lead to further outdoor recreation, inspire positive risk-taking and confidence-building among young people, and contribute to healthier communities overall.

This workshop will run for five days in July in Asheville, North Carolina. The goal is for each teacher to become comfortable leading students through the process of creating their own lab or field experiments and drawing data-supported conclusions. All participants will hone their skills at helping students generate novel research questions, collecting appropriate data, and determining which statistical method to use. In each workshop in Asheville, North Carolina, teachers will perform activities that cover the course material for the featured topic as if they were the students exploring and becoming familiar with these concepts firsthand.
Specifically, participants will focus on ways to help students experience the concepts using inquiry methods that integrate the information in each unit with information in other parts of the course curriculum. IB, AP, and General course teachers are all welcome. This workshop will share student-centered activities, case studies, games, and other techniques that can be used to identify and dispel misconceptions and increase student involvement and critical thinking.
Each training day will be filled with hands-on, student-centered activities that allow you to see the flipped classroom from the student's perspective. Workshops include instructional materials lesson plans for covering the content, skills, assessments and study skills for that session; as well as continuing education credits for 40 hours of professional development.
