2015 Summer Nikon Photos 154This course is offered in partnership with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and the National Park Service to provide graduate credit for the high-quality professional development program, The Trail to Every Classroom (TTEC). The TTECĀ course provides K-12 educators with the tools and training needed to implement a place-based curriculum and to conduct service-learning with students on the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). During the course, educators develop their own experiential learning curriculum based on state educational standards that integrate a hands-on study of the A.T. The TTEC program goals are to: engage youth in volunteer activities; encourage a love of learning; promote healthy lifestyles; create a conservation ethic; and to form a respect for the Appalachian Trail. Note: Mary Baldwin students must be accepted into the TTEC program before registering for this course.
