Professional Development & Citizen Science Training
Monarchs Across Georgia offers professional development opportunities for non-formal and formal educators, as well as outreach options.
Our educator workshops range from 6-10 hours and are facilitated by experienced environmental educators. The 10-hour workshops are accredited by the Georgia Department of Education with one professional learning unit (PLU). Fees usually range from $100 - $175 per person, depending on the cost of materials and supplies.
The workshops cover basic monarch biology and ecology, monarch citizen science projects (Journey North, Project Monarch Health, Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, and Monarch Watch tagging), and creating pollinator habitats.
Monarchs and More: An Inquiry and Arthropod-Based Curriculum is the basis for the monarch butterfly studies and schoolyard ecology explorations included in the workshop. Curricula are divided into grade-level lessons for K-2, 3-5, and Middle School, with a strong interdisciplinary approach incorporating concepts and skills in science, math, reading, writing, art, and social studies. Lessons are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Citizen Science Training is also available and ranges from 3-5 hours. Journey North, Project Monarch Health, Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, and Monarch Watch tagging demonstrations and field work are included. Fees usually range from $35 - $60 per person, dependent on the cost of materials and supplies.
