The Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education supports environmental science (ES) education to enhance the environmental literacy of Wisconsin's students and teachers.
Environmental Science Teaching Licensure
An environmental science teaching license ensures educators meet state requirements and have the necessary background to teach environmental science courses. Holding an environmental science licensure makes teachers more marketable and provides options for expanding existing curriculum. There are several options for obtaining an environmental science license in Wisconsin as a preservice or inservice educator. Learn more
Wisconsin Environmental Science Course Framework
The Wisconsin Environmental Science Course Framework outlines an ideal year-long high school environmental science course. Topics in the framework are prioritized to help in planning courses of varied length. The framework is not intended to serve as a curriculum but to provide a consistent foundation upon which environmental science courses in Wisconsin can be developed. The framework should be modified to meet each individual teacher's needs.
Environmental Science Digital Resource Library
The digital resource library contains materials that can be used to teach the topics, concepts, and subconcepts in the Environmental Science Course Framework. Resources include activities; assessment strategies; labs; websites; and video, field trip, and guest speaker suggestions. Items in the library were contributed by Wisconsin teachers and can be modified to meet individual classroom needs.
