The New Environmentalists: From Chicago to the Karoo is the latest installment of the Emmy award winning series featuring portraits of six passionate and dedicated activists. They are true environmental heroes who have placed themselves squarely in harm's way to battle intimidating adversaries, while often creating partnerships with unlikely allies.
We'll start with Pre-K math students and finish up with high school English students as we explore the many ways Common Core is being integrated into classrooms-in both math and ELA the emphasis is teaching students how to think.
New teachers and their mentors focus on lesson planning, classroom management and differentiation.
In our first half hour, we'll see how students are becoming "Super Digital Citizens" as they learn how to use the Internet responsibly - then, we'll switch gears and too see new ways teachers are working to improve their practice.
