The Integrated Pest Management Curriculum for Connecticut

TEACHERS WANTED!

    

THE CONNECTICUT CURRICULUM FOR

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT 

          The Integrated Pest Management coordinators at the University of Connecticut are working with Connecticut teachers to develop six comprehensive curricula for children and young adults in grades K through 12.  These curricula are intended to illustrate the application of the science, math and language arts taught in our schools to solving the environmental and human health problems facing society and to introduce the concepts of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to the younger generation.  The interactive, easy-to-follow lessons and supplemental resource materials will enable participants to make environmentally sound, economically smart decisions when facing the growing problem of pest management.  

          The curricula for grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5, and 7-8 are now available and the curriculum for grades 5-6 is currently in press.  Workshops will be scheduled throughout Connecticut.  Curricula for grades 9-12 will be developed over the next two years.   

If you would like to be added to our mailing list for workshop announcements and curriculum updates, or if you would like to obtain the IPM curriculum, please fill out the form below and mail to: Donna Ellis, University of Connecticut, Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture, 1390 Storrs Road, Unit 4163, Storrs, CT  06269; phone (860) 486-6448; FAX (860) 486-0534; email donna.ellis@uconn.edu
