This program took place in February 2020 at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. Ms. Emily Yam was our guest educational speaker on the hydrosphere lesson. Her talk and my teaching resources can be found at Bit.ly/LeGoogle. Special Thanks to Aquarium of the Pacific and Emily for supporting this program! Also, Thanks to Ms. Allison Desfor for your help and support! Thanks to all the incredible teachers for such a fun experience together! Below are testimonials from teacher participants.
"This training is the most effective and helpful training I have ever attended in regards to NGSS, and the only one that addresses human impact." - Long Beach USD Science Teacher
"Hearing how Kelley has taught different lessons and would connect different activities, phenomenon, and demos together was helpful for me to picture how I might reframe my lessons. I also enjoyed practicing the activities from a student perspective." - Anaheim USD Science Teacher
"The vast online resources are amazing, I look forward to diving more in depth with them." - San Gabriel USD Science Teacher
"I appreciated the support in learning how to select an AP and the resources to support the development of the unit. This allowed me to have real tools that I can take with me when I plan a unit. I also appreciate how you showed us ways to incorporate climate crisis topics into all NGSS units, not just the unit on human impact." - Long Beach USD Science Teacher
"The anchoring phenomenon template and the digital resources helped me build my launch unit for introducing climate crisis and human impacts. YouTube videos have always been effective in capturing my students' interest and attention, and it was great to see these incorporated in the presentation. The template and modeling how to use it helped me picture what it would look like in my classroom." - Whittier USD Science Teacher
