NSTA Chicago!!!

Tomorrow, I get on a plane to fly to Chicago for the National Science Teachers Association national conference. I haven't been to the national conference since 2006 during my first solo year teaching. That year was incredibly memorable (especially meeting Bill Nye) and started me on a path of continuous reflection and professional growth. 


This year, I'm overjoyed to be presenting Write Like a Scientist! A session that grounds literacy integration in the experience of outdoor data collection. Please come!




Write Like a Scientist!
Friday, 5:00—6:00
(Grades 2–8) W178b, McCormick Place
Science Focus: GEN, SEP4
Joey Lehnhard (@joeyelle), Monterey Bay Aquarium
Explore the biodiversity of California’s rocky shores and use your data and observations to motivate students to write authentically about science. Then, plan a biodiversity project at your school site! Led by education staff of the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
