Environmental Education workshop held for education majors

November 17, 2009

Christina Stallings Roberson from the Oklahoma Forestry Service in Oklahoma City recently held an Environmental Education workshop for secondary education majors at Northwestern Oklahoma State University.

 
Northwestern secondary education majors worked with Christina Stallings Roberson from the Oklahoma Forestry Service to learn about creating exciting lesson plans focused around environmental education.

Roberson held a four hour workshop during a class taught by Dr. Steven Mackie, associate professor of education. During Principles and Methods of Teaching, 11 secondary education majors received ideas for lesson plans, mainly ideas pertaining to environmental education. These students will enter schools to begin student teaching next semester.

“With this class and workshop, students will gain practical advice and ideas for lesson plans,” Mackie said. “Roberson comes to Northwestern twice a year, but this is the most in depth workshop she has held here.”

Northwestern seniors who are preparing for student teaching next semester are Tyler Bates, Mooreland; Brandon Bookout and Katy Ferguson, Enid; Carl Gaebler, Hominy; Kelli Krows, Seiling; Amy (Hook) Chase, Heather Lohmann, Ryan Penner and Jake Phillips, Alva; Kristi Patton, Medicine Lodge, Kan.; Alex Shafer, Lubbock, Texas.
