E-Teach is one of the first of the four cornerstones of the E-SCAPE Program.
E-Teach targets educators and future educators. This program is designed by teachers for teachers. E-Teach provide teachers with continuing education requirements that they need through future workshops at Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge.
As Texas's student achievements in math, science and technology continue to lag behind national levels, the disadvantaged rural students & educators need relevant and innovative programs that utilize local resources and environments to enhance math, science and technology curricula through hands-on "real world" scientific methods. Through E-Teach, teachers will be equipped with a unique environment that enables them to have familiarity with programs that are designed by them for their own students use.
E-SCAPE will provide environmental and wildlife opportunities to introduce local educators, future educators and their students to innovative, technological science and math hands-on curricula and activities.
The Tiger Missing Link Foundation has partnered with educational entities to create, write and implement science/math and technology curricula. During curricula development, the teacher retreat center will include E-Systems that are planned and established at Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge. Teachers from the region will be able to attend workshops to learn and develop curricula for students for the E-Venture & E-Camp Programs. A few of the topics include the areas of wildlife management, conservation, and ecology.
