Join us at this training to learn about our in-class programs, the curriculums, teaching strategies, and how to become a in-class program leader. Program leaders:
- Lead groups of students or adults through structured in-class programs, including programs on migration, adaptations, water, ecosystems, conservation, bird banding demonstrations, and school-wide bird festivals.
- Work with different age groups, and be flexible in adapting your lessons to the appropriate grade level
- Facilitate inquiry-based experiential learning
- Embrace teachable moments
This training is for new volunteers, and is recommended as a refresher for returning volunteers.
If you’re interested, you are welcome to attend; no teaching experience is necessary, though experience with children is preferred. Applicants with a working knowledge of natural resources, natural history, ornithology, or who have the willingness to learn, are comfortable speaking in front of a group, and are reliable, adaptable, team players are encouraged to apply.
Programs vary in length, with in-class sessions between 45 mins to an hour, dependent on program. In-class programs occur throughout the year, Monday – Friday, with a focus in the metro-Denver area.
