NYC Teachers Election Day Professional Development 2013
November 5, 2013
Join us on Election Day for a professional development day geared for Grade K-12 teachers who want to strengthen their ability to use Museum resources to teach earth science and astronomy. Sessions are designed to help teachers connect Museum resources to common core literacy and science standards.
Activities will be modeled during the workshops and discussions with colleagues will provide an opportunity for teachers to differentiate lessons for their students. A presentation by a scientist will explore cutting edge research related to topics that are commonly taught in city schools. Teachers will receive copies of the Educator’s Guide for the Museum exhibits they use during the day as well as digital and print resources.
Cost: $35 per participant includes continental breakfast, lunch and Museum resources.
Registration for this event is now closed
