Forestry Education Resource Blitz 

Tuesday April 20th, 4:30-5:30pm CST

Join staff from LEAF, Wisconsin’s K-12 Forestry Education Program, as we explore the forestry education resources that are available to science teachers. We will take a hands-on look at our free K-12 curriculum (including lessons that are appropriate for online learning), new video resources, tree identification tools, trunks and kits, and our new high school forestry scope and sequence. We will also learn about the School Forest Program and LEAF’s professional development opportunities.

Topic: Using Technology to Engage Students in Learning (Asynchronous or Synchronous)

Grade Band: 9-12

Description: In a classroom, body language and expression tells us a lot about student understanding, however what happens when we don't have the benefit of that interaction?  We can use technology to help bridge that gap.  In this session, teachers will learn how to use technology in ways to interact with students in a new way.  

5-6: Presenter: Andy Swank (Curriculum Specialist, Savvas) | andrew.swank@Savvas.com

Topic: Teaching Through a Storyline.

Grade Band: K-8

Description: Learn to transform your science classroom by using a storyline to help students make connections to local phenomena.  Discover how easy it is to embed the science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas in a way that inspires learning.  Is your science class short on time? This session will teach you how to focus on the most important science content, allows for maximum inquiry experience and provides students with lasting knowledge all in a way that is flexible enough to fit any classroom and is easy to implement.

March 4 - NASA Webinar Series for Rural Educators 

It is no secret that both girls and rural students are underrepresented in the STEM pipeline. Rural girls experience unique barriers with their intersecting identities and experiences, and may benefit from mentors and strategies that aim to support their navigation through STEM fields. Join Albert Einstein Distinguished Educators at NASA Rachael Arens and Michael Guarraia for a freestyle conversation and workshop with NASA’s Jessica Taylor and Tina Harte on Thursday, March 4th at 7pm CT to gain effective mentor/educator strategies that enhance your ability to encourage and support rural girls in STEM. This webinar is suitable for all grades K-12 and any educator who wishes to support rural girls in their STEM journeys.

 

View the NASA 3D Flyer March 4th.pdf from NASA’s webpage and gain access to registration. Registration We hope to see you all on March 4th!
