"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

"EVERYTHING was so effective in helping me design curriculum! I love being able to teach students about something that they will care about. I loved the first part of the workshop, where we learned about coral reefs and watched those moving videos (totally going to use them this year!)" Lawndale ESD Middle School Science Teacher
"The information on Earth Systems. Both lessons helped me under how to develop and design curriculum for my middle school students. It provided me with ideas on making units/lessons aligned with the NGSS; the information also provided me with ideas on creating lessons/activities that would be interesting to my students." TREE Academy Science Teacher
"The presentation of current data (different sets of data related to environmental issues) and what the country or specifically what LA is doing to help resolve environmental issues helped me learn more about global climate change." Los Angeles USD Science Teacher
"I loved Emily's presentation on the data of the climate change and the examples of natural phenomenon that Kelley went through." Walnut Valley USD Science Teacher
