NYC Teachers Election Day Professional Development 2012
November 6, 2012
Join us on Election Day to enrich your understanding of Museum resources and activities for teaching in the newly renovated Hall of North American Mammals and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall. Teachers will have the opportunity to interact with AMNH staff to strengthen their ability to teach topics that include species conservation and biological adaptation. A new Educator’s Guide will frame the exploration of the exhibits and breakout sessions will model activities for teaching in the Museum. During the day we will hear from experts on the history, organization and science presented in these halls. Teachers will receive copies of the Educator’s Guide for the Hall of North American Mammals as well as digital and print resources for teaching.
Help us to celebrate the renovation and reopening of these halls and learn how to use them with your students.
Cost: $35 per participant includes continental breakfast, lunch and Museum resources.
