January 14, 2006: “The Hero’s Journey”
What do mining and forestry have in common? How are agriculture and energy interrelated? How do the natural and built environments impact each other? And how do all of these relate to earth’s systems of energy, matter, and life? Explore the interconnectedness of these systems and strands, using information from many of Arizona’s natural resource providers. Karen Schedler and Sandy Reith from the Arizona Department of Game & Fish and Project Wild will answer these questions and more. This workshop will be held at the Wildlife Building at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, 17th Ave. and McDowell in Phoenix. Enter parking lot from the 19th Avenue entrance. Free parking for the workshop.April 22, 2006: “The Law”
Attorney Robert Walston will facilitate this workshop. Teachers will learn the basic precepts of the justice system and work through a mock court situation like the one students will experience. Mr. Walston is respected in the community and has won awards for his pro bono work. This should help teachers prepare fully to work with this supplement.
