From the Ground Up - Professional Development Workshop
In Summer 2011, SBC and the Math Science Partnership program hosted "From the Ground Up," a summer Professional Development for Teachers workshop that included 22 new junior high and high school teachers from Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties from five different school districts. The SBC MSP team, which also included a researcher from the Colorado SGS MSP team, led teachers through a week-long workshop that included training on curricula associated with the project's environmental literacy strands of Biodiversity, Carbon and Water, as well as a theme-based Citizenship activity. Workshop participants also took a guided tour of an SBC watershed. Each day of the workshop was highlighted with a strand-focused research seminar led by SBC graduate researchers, post-docs and senior scientists.
