Workshops are open to any grade level teacher or educator interested in learning more about the bird conservation curriculum. The workshop is 2 days and involves the training on five lesson plans where participants are briefed on the purpose of the activity, the background, and procedure. Participants then perform the activity to ensure it is clear on what is expected from the students. Following each activity, the lesson is discussed and ideas/suggestions are shared within the group. The evaluation of the curriculum is strictly for 6th grade science teachers at the moment. If you are interested please contact Janel Ortiz at TAMUKBirdsGK12@gmail.com to get started! It is important that all program participants go through the training workshop to ensure they are prepared to conduct the activities in class and Janell will be there to help you along the way!
