Hello! This past week I had the incredible honor of presenting to a group of K-12 educators through Aerospace STEM. The educators had a mini deep-dive experience to thinking about where they are in their own teaching journeys to understand that strategies don't change practice. There is a reason for why some of the best PD never makes it into the classroom and it has so much to do with what we value and believe about teaching and learning. If you're ready to have a conversation with me (and really yourself) about your own teaching practices in preparation of taking on the NGSS and climate change/science, crack open my book today to get started =).
Check out my new friends at Aerospace here: https://aerospace.org/STEM-Events
They also offer many free opportunities for teachers and students to get involved in STEM and aerospace throughout the year (i.e. Attending networking events, have an aerospace professional zoom in with your students, have students join one of the outreach programs, etc.). They are fantastic!
Stay tuned for my upcoming posts! I'm traveling with my book to showcase ways to bring culturally relevant phenomena into the science curriculum in meaningful ways to engage students in science more authentically =).
