Book Gives ACOs a Lesson in Crafting Lesson Plans

If you'd like to talk to local elementary school students about what you do but you aren’t sure where to begin, a new book from the National Association of Humane and Environmental Education (NAHEE) can give you just the sort of “education” you need. An Animal Care & Control Professional’s Guide to Classroom Presentations was created to help busy animal control officers—especially those in small or one-person departments—design successful classroom visits for students in grades K-6.

Using this guide, presenters can engage and educate children on subjects they aren’t likely to hear about in their regular lessons—such as dog bite prevention, pet overpopulation, and the work of animal control officers. The book is full of worksheets, class activities, clip art, and other resources. It explains how to arrange an initial class visit, gives public speaking pointers, and even includes a sample letter to parents.

The book also provides tips on answering tough questions like, “If there are so many homeless animals, why not give them away to anyone who will give them a home?”

Guide to Classroom Presentations can be ordered online at NAHEE's online catalog or by phone at 860-434-8666, ext. 33.
