Resources for Educators

- Thursday, March 21, 2013

At This American Land, we strive to educate our viewers about the conservation issues that currently face American landscapes, waters and wildlife. The stories we feature can also be excellent resources for educators to use in their classrooms. 

We are forging partnerships with educational associations and organizations to help us fine-tune elements of our content for classroom use. This American Land co-host Caroline Raville, who is also an educator, has created some lesson plans and graphic organizers, currently available on our website, which can be used in your classroom in tandem with some of the stories from season two of This American Land.

You can view all of the educational resources we currently have available on our Educators page. We welcome your feedback on these resources, as well as any questions you may have about using these elements in your classroom.

Series co-host Caroline Raville on location for our story on the Nature Conservancy’s LEAF program.

Episode 213 of This American Land features an excellent story on the Nature Conservancy’s youth program called Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future, also known as LEAF.

The program creates opportunities for young people to engage with nature, from partnering with environmental high schools around the nation, to providing internship opportunities for students to explore careers connected to nature and the environment.
