Project Learning Tree in Action: What your dollars support

 

Over 100 teachers are trained annually in Project Learning Tree K-12 materials that are correlated to curriculum standards, providing teachers with the tools they need to make nature their classroom. Physical movement connects students to living trees, blooming plants and crawling bugs providing a hands-on and interactive learning environment that fosters students’ creativity, inquisitiveness and problem-solving skills—essential qualities in this increasingly complex world.

 “Overwhelming...exciting...the best source of PD I've experienced...at times, one of those ‘you have to be there to fully understand’ experiences.”

Why should you support NH Project Learning Tree? 

For the last 10 years we have provided long term sustained professional development to twelve school districts with our NHEET partners resulting in change in teacher practice in using the environment as a context for learning. Teachers who have engaged in our programs continue using the materials years after they have taken the training. Some of these teachers have worked to involve their students in community service projects that improve the environment in their community. 

"PLT materials have allowed me to get my students learning outside."

Support for Project Learning Tree’s Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood has been overwhelming with over 200 teachers per year engaging in professional development to connect young children to the outdoors.

“Giving me both the knowledge background and the flexibility to apply things in a way that fit me and my students’ needs.”

NH Project Learning Tree Network is made up of partners, facilitators and trained teachers.  We maintain communication with them through our monthly e-newsletter.

"Spectacular, informative, related to the Common Core. I would also tell my colleagues from school that the more the merrier when it comes to participating in this kind of experience. The two other teachers from my school who are here and I are closer and now have shared a common experience and learning environment. We collaborated with many other teachers at various grade levels and schools to see the relationship of learning for ourselves and our students.”

We work with award winning teachers.

 

What are teachers saying? 

In the spring of 2014, case study interviews were conducted with four participants in the Building Vertical Science Literacy program.  Those interviewed represented a range of participating schools, grades, teachers, and administrators. Click here to read the case study interview summaries.

“I’ve been going to college for one degree or another since 1997 – in fact, I’m now in the process of getting my doctorate. That said, this has been the best professional development experience I’ve ever had, hands down – including any of my college course work.”
