The Secret Lives of “Stuff” course for K12 teachers

January 12 - February 16


Relevant content as we educate during this difficult time.

Enroll for January 12-February 16 OR June 8-July 13 course

You’ll design virtual or face-to-face lessons.

Throughout the course, you will explore powerful classroom-ready lessons, activities, videos and readings. You’ll also engage with other educators in idea-sharing. In Module 1, consider what’s important to you. Then, examine waste and the life cycles of “stuff,” such as t-shirts and water bottles. From there, analyze ways you and your students can conserve resources and live more sustainably.

After exploring these topics and associated resources, you’ll create online or face-to-face plans. Designed for use in your classroom, your plans will meet subject-area standards. Join us!

Licensure renewal for this course is $95; one hour of graduate credit is available from Drake, Grand View or Morningside for $190.
