Michael Jabot appointed to Leopold National Leadership Team

Dr. Michael Jabot

Science Education Professor Michael Jabot of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction has been named to the newly-formed National Leadership Team for the Leopold Education Project.

Dr. Jabot joins Treva Breuch from Wisconsin; Marc Hirrel, Arkansas, and Luann Sewell Waters, Oklahoma, in shaping the national direction and focus of this program.

The Leopold Education Project is an innovative, interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education curriculum based on essays in the influential, “A Sand County Almanac,” written in 1949 by Aldo Leopold, an ecologist, forester and environmentalist. LEP uses Leopold's writings as a springboard for engaging students in natural science curriculum.

Over the last 20 years, more than 15,000 educators have attended a LEP workshop. More recently, the original curriculum was expanded to include new activities and incorporate new technologies such as GPS and remote sensing.
