Nineteen Twenty-First Century Community Learning Centers (21CCLC) in Columbia, Maryland participated in a Mutt-i-grees® training on Thursday, August 14, 2014. Norma Meek, Mutt-i-grees® Educational Consultant and National Peer Trainer, conducted two training sessions for approximately 45 educators who will be implementing the Curriculum this school year. Participants received an overview of the research base for the lessons, learned implementation techniques and participated in model lessons.
For the third year in a row, Project C.A.R.E. and North Shore Animal League America collaborated on the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum Summer Youth Program for at-risk teens from MercyFirst’s Residential Treatment Center in Syosset, NY.
The Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum is designed for use in various classroom settings. When teachers are using the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum for health education, they can be confident that they are addressing the National Health Education Standards.
