Read the press release. Want to understand more about SFI products? Watch this short video that talks about the SFI logo and what it means.

Proposals submitted after March 1, 2015, will need to provide agendas that list objectives and outcomes for their workshops.  This handout will help you write objectives and outcomes for your workshop.

Need help with verbs for your measurable objectives? Check out this very helpful handout based on Bloom’s Taxonomy! You can also use Blooms’s Revised Taxonomy verbs, or process verbs from this chart which demonstrates the levels of mastery. But what a minute… what the heck is all this Bloom’s Taxonomy stuff anyways?


How is the NC PLT Program structured? The three state partners (N.C. Cooperative Extension, NC Forestry Association, and the NC Forest Service) have a signed MOU with the American Forest Foundation, which houses the national Project Learning Tree program. Our state program is run based on the NC PLT Program Guidelines, which is part of our partner MOU.

At the state level, the NC PLT program is guided by an Advisory Committee. This committee helps plan the direction for the NC PLT program, helps implement statewide initiatives, seeks funding opportunities, and helps plan facilitator training. The committee operates under a set by-laws communication policy.


Ways to Market your workshops locally:  Contact your regional DPI support team (formerly the RESAs). Send the professional development contact listed a email/flier and ask them to share with their education contacts. These groups also have annual meetings for educators, and most regions have an opportunity for EE Centers to interact with the participants during the meeting.
