Welcome back to the new school year. Hope yours is off to a good start. Anita Brook Dupree will demonstrate the use of EcoExpress videos at the MATH + SCIENCE TEACHER FORUM – sponsored by Philadelphia Educational Fund’s Math Science Coalition. The Coalition’s Math and Science Teacher Forum will kick off on Monday, October 1—FREE—dinner at 4:30 followed by announcements and PD sessions. The Forum will be held at the United Way Building, 1709 Ben Franklin Parkway. There is often on-street metered parking in the vicinity of the Parkway, Vine St., between 17th and 18th at that hour and there’s a lot at 17th and Vine that’s reasonable. If you are a middle or high school science teacher you are invited to attend, free of charge. All we ask is that you RSVP by September 28 to Don McKinney firstname.lastname@example.org
EcoExpress videos tell real stories about environmental challenges in our local community. Ms. Dupree will demonstrate the use of the videos in science class as well as show teachers how the array of videos can be used in language arts and social studies classes. She will demonstrate how the videos are aligned to state standards, and explore the pre and post viewing features available. Several community partners will join Ms. Dupree: Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, Earth Force and Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center. These partners have worked with EcoExpress and will explain their educational programs to teachers.
