The workshop will be held:Saturday, February 2, 20198:30AM-4:00PMAmerican Museum of Natural HistoryDavis Classroom WestCentral Park West & 79th StNew York, NY 10024
This workshop series will explore ecology including communities (February 2) and ecosystems (May 18), with a focus on human impacts, including climate change. Major emphases will be on the crosscutting concepts of systems and scale, particularly interconnections among systems, since understanding ecosystems at one scale such as populations is necessary for understanding ecosystems at another, such as communities. Living Environment, AP Biology and Environmental Science, and IB Biology and Environmental Systems teachers are encouraged to attend.
• Receive free classroom-ready materials for the teaching of ecology.• Breakfast and lunch, and professional development certificates will be provided.• Staff development rate available for NYCDOE employees; CTLE credit available for NY employees.
