This program took place in Fall 2018 at Reef Check Foundation in Marina Del Rey. Ms. Katie Kozma 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 Reef Check and Katie for supporting this program! Thanks to the incredible teachers for such a fun experience together! Below are testimonials from teacher participants.
"I loved all of the resource links. I also appreciated being put through a simple lab procedure to experience an NGSS lab myself. It will make it easier to bring my old lesson plans up to date with NGSS." - Culver City USD Science Teacher
"Hands on materials is so great. It was extremely beneficial to have someone local, like Katie, explain impacts to oceans in California. I have always wanted to SCUBA certified and know I have a reason why - help with the Reef Check. The intro to resources was an exciting way to generate ideas." - Santa Monica USD Science Teacher
"I learned a lot just from the videos we were shown and the data we were provided with. Learning about the carbon cycle paths provided the background science information that I was missing. I enjoyed learning about the science that explains climate change and the causes of climate change." - Los Angeles USD Science Teacher
"The more I use the concept map, the more effective I'm finding it. I'm able to quickly figure out how to inject different phenomena into my teaching." - Lynwood USD Science Teacher
"Being provided the evidence about the Consensus on Consensus was very effective which I can share with the students and even the parents to make climate change a REAL thing." - Pomona USD Science Teacher
