EcoSTEM Day! Using Succession to Teach the Dynamics of Ecosystem Change (HS), Teachers College, Columbia University, Saturday, 25. April 2020

Using Succession to Teach the Dynamics of Ecosystem Change
Led by: Glen E. Stuart, Jessica Pagodin and Kerry Kline

Have you ever felt that the Environmental Science curriculum felt unconnected? Have you ever found your students memorizing the components of an ecosystem without understanding the unique emergent properties of the system as a whole? Have you ever wanted a robust and quantitative way to explore ecological succession? If this sounds like you or someone you know, come experience a taste of the new modeling-based Environmental Science Curriculum on April 25th. This professional development will allow you to explore r and K strategists in “student mode” within the context of succession as a means to derive the adaptive cycle; as well as provide you the opportunity to mix and mingle with like-minded teachers while you incorporate these ideas into your classroom in “teacher mode”.

Interested in purchasing a series and want an Invoice/Purchase Order Request?
Teachers! Ask your school to pay for your ticket! All the school needs to do is send us a Purchase Order (PO). Fill out our PO/Invoice survey and we will prepare you an invoice for you to submit to your school/district. Or just copy and paste the information above and let them know the workshop you want to attend. Don't be afraid to ask. There's always a chance the money will be available and they'll say yes, but if you don't ask, there's no chance at all.
Districts/Schools, to request an invoice for a STEMteachersNYC Workshop, please fill out a quick invoice survey. This is a required step in order to process your request. Any questions regarding the PO process please contact karen@stemteachersnyc.org

Please note: We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.
If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded - you must inform us at check-in.
