HEART is at it again. Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers is offering a humane education course this fall for teachers of grades K-5. The course will focus on how teachers can bring up issues such as animal rights, human rights, and environmental protection (as well as how they overlap) in the classroom. The course, a Professional Development “P-Course,” has the rigor of a graduate level class worth 3 credits in Humane Education. Plus, it’s a professional development credit-bearing course that qualifies toward a salary differential for NYC schoolteachers. Sponsored in conjunction with the United Federation of Teachers Humane Education Committee, it will meet on 6 Saturdays between Sept. 25 and Dec. 4, and costs less than $200. You can find out more information about the course here, as well as on HEART’s website.
And if you heart HEART as much as we heart it, check out our recent podcast interview with Meena Alagappan, their lovely Executive Director.
