Conferences & Other Events
EEI staff and Teacher Ambassadors regularly present at statewide and regional conferences to share information about California’s Environmental Principles and Concepts (EP&Cs) and discuss opportunities to strengthen environmental literacy in K-12 instruction. The scope of these events typically extends beyond the EEI Curriculum and, therefore, attendance usually does not qualify you to receive free EEI unit materials.
If you are interested in attending a training that focuses exclusively on the EEI Curriculum and/or want to attend training to qualify to order free EEI unit materials, please attend an in-person training or webinar instead.
Upcoming Conferences & Other Events:
- March 30, 2017 • Los Angeles
National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Conference
Using the Environment as a Springboard to Real World 3D Learning
Venue: Los Angeles Convention Center, Room 515A
Session Time: 2:00 - 3:00pm
Support environmental literacy and engage students in 3D exploration using the environment as an authentic and intrinsically engaging, real-world context for learning. We will share tools and strategies for utilizing the environment as an organizing context for NGSS-based, three-dimensional instruction. After an introduction to the State of California’s Environmental Principles and Concepts, a set of universally applicable “big ideas” about the environment, participants will work together to unpack the exemplar lessons.
