Signs of the Tide: Can We Overcome the Environmental Curriculum Gap?
Environmental educators and teachers work every day to ensure that our children develop the knowledge and skills to excel in life and take responsibility for the environment. Can we create a correlation between state education standards and general environmental education? Join us to explore different visions for today's school education and environmental education and how they can work together to achieve the same goal.
If you are a teacher working to align your favorite lessons to the state standards, an informal educator trying to understand how your program can align to the state standards, a parent wondering what your child learns about the environment or a community leader looking for after school and summer educational experiences--don't miss this opportunity to join an open forum about environmental science curriculum. We will have speakers from different fields of education lead the dialogue, and you are an important part of the discussion.
At our free community forum, hear from these environmental education experts:
• Cynthia Mallett, environmental specialist City of Oceanside, Clean Water Program
• Lauren Biggie, educational programs director for Agua Hedionda Lagoon Discovery Center
• Justin Kern, principal of Stuart Mesa Elementary School in Oceanside Unified School District
We will hold our free Signs of the Tide on August 29 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Oceanside City Hall, in the community rooms adjacent to the library, at 300 N. Coast Highway, Oceanside, 92054.
