I received this e-mail last week and wanted to share it with any of you who are Biology teachers. It sounds really cool and all of your expenses are paid for (including travel). If any of you go, I would love to hear about your experiences.
As you are working to close out another school year, we are looking ahead to the next! The Genetic Science Learning Center has developed an NGSS-aligned unit on Evolution for high school Biology and is seeking teachers to pilot test the unit during the 2016-2017 academic year. This exciting new six-week unit utilizes real data, science practices and cross-cutting concepts to explore the shared biochemistry of life, common ancestry, heredity, natural selection, and speciation.
Pilot Testing will involve:
Attending an expenses-paid training in Salt Lake City, UT July 26-29, 2016
Using the six week unit with 2 or more general biology classes during the 2016-2017 academic year
