This year the theme of the MTS teachers' handbook and calendar is environmental education.
Across North America, environmental education is gaining more prominence with the construction of outdoor classrooms, increased emphasis on recycling and composting and illustrations as to how the environment intertwines with daily life and core subjects.
This special section of the website contains all the information that has been included in the handbook.Throughout the year we will be reporting on more aspects of environmental education in The Manitoba Teacher. Those articles will be added to this section along with some special video projects we have undertaken.
We hope this resource will be of help to teachers who want to learn more about environmental education or get tips on how to integrate environmental learning into various areas of day-to-day teaching.
