Key Issues Institute provides educators with the process, skills, and confidence to investigate current environmental and STEM issues with their students using innovative and engaging ideas, activities, and methods. Our non-biased framework promotes inquiry, providing educators with step-by-step instructions to guide students through an investigation of all sides of an issue.
In this training, teachers will learn how to incorporate conflict resolution and mediation, role playing and simulations, small group work, and lab activities, combining classroom lessons with outdoor exploration. Our curriculum encourages teachers and students to use their knowledge to become active community members, both locally and globally.
