December 11-12, 2019

MWDOC Public Affairs staff participated in a panel and hosted an information booth at a California Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Statewide Rollout in December. The two-day professional training opportunity engaged participants in grade appropriate learning sequences with an environmental literacy focus. K-12 educators, administrators, academic coaches, and curriculum leads learned how to use environmental phenomena as a focal point for teaching NGSS, and were introduced to the importance of connecting teachers with community-based organizations to enhance lesson plans.
