New Summer Class Offered to K-12 Instructors

"Immersive Integrated Curriculum" new two-day class for K-12 instructors

A new two-day class for K-12 instructors is being offered this summer through the Center for Training and Development at Casper College.

The class, “Immersive Integrated Curriculum” (CEU 0517 01) will show instructors how to seamlessly integrate science, technology, engineering, art, and math curricula, (STEM plus art), with history and language arts, while simultaneously creating experiential learning environments for students, according to Sarah Schneider.

Taught by Dr. Evert Brown, Dr. Terry Logue, Leah Ritz, and George Vlastos, participants will spend their time on Casper Mountain comparing three waterways, observing fire succession, creating field-trip lesson plans, visiting historic mine sites, and exploring creative ways to record the experiences. “Instructors will learn how to create engaging place-based programs using the environment around them,” noted Schneider, workforce training specialist.

The class is limited to 18 participants and will take place on Monday, July 24 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesday, July 25 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Included in the registration fee of $250 is one Professional Teaching Standards Board credit. One graduate credit is also available for an additional $50. NCSD instructors are also eligible for a $200 tuition grant provided by the Board of Cooperative Educational Services. The fee also covers lunches, snacks, and transportation to and from Casper Mountain.
