PD Workshop – Invasive Species: Ecosystem Impacts and Students as Part of the Solution

November 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 3:45 pm

Educating students about invasive species can serve the dual purpose of meeting science content and science & engineering practices requirements for Michigan Science Standards and protecting the Great Lakes from new invasive species.  New invasions that damage our environment are so intertwined with science, economics, history, and geography that they form the perfect nexus for cross-curricular teaching.  Participants will address science concepts of adaptation, food webs, and reproduction, as well as social studies skills of map-making, persuasive writing, analyzing technical text to aid in understanding invasive species, and civic engagement in an issue of public importance.

Workshop includes:

  • Lunch & classroom materials
  • $150 participant stipend (may use all or part for sub pay)
  • 6 SCECHs

After the workshop, participants have the option to earn:

  • $200 per lesson developed after the workshop (optional).
  • $300 to make presentations and/or write articles for educational publications and conferences
