The Conservation Tales team will be appearing at events to promote the books and discuss the design of the materials. Look for us at conferences, art shows, environmental education sites, and more. Keep an eye on this page for a list of upcoming events.
Virtual Teacher Professional Development
Dr. McConnell will lead a full day of teacher professional development via video conference as part of a new program from the Hoosier Association of Science Teachers, Inc. The morning session will focus on Conservation Tales and how teachers can integrate the books into an interdisciplinary unit plan. In the afternoon, Dr. McConnell lead teachers in a similar theme, but will shift the focus to the PBL in the Science Classroom series he published through NSTA Press.
Cost for the workshop is $25 per person, and PGP points will be included through a digital certificate. Watch the HASTI website for details as they develop!
