New Online Modules – Teach About Fire in Alaska
ANROE and Project Learning Tree have partnered to bring to Alaskan educators five interactive learning modules – “Forest and Tundra Ecology,” “Fire’s Effects on the Ecosystem,” “Fire Management,” “Climate Change Implications for Fire in Alaska,” and “Alaska Firewise.” These modules were developed for educators and provide background content to prepare them to develop units for their students. They also were designed to be used by ANROE fire workshops to be given in a number of Alaskan communities in the upcoming 2 years. To find out more about these workshops as they are scheduled, visit http://www.anroe.net/programs-workshops/upcoming-workshops/
periodically or email email@example.com
. To access the fire modules visit plt.org
and set up an account. Go to https://shop.plt.org/
and click on the K-8 curriculum. Purchase the online course for $40 (not just buy the curriculum) and you will be able to access the online PLT K-8 course as well as the fire modules. These modules were part of a Wildfire Urban Interface grant, funded by the Alaska Division of Forestry, Department of Natural Resources pursuant to USDA Forest Service Award No. 2017-DG-11100106-810.
