Middle School and High School Educators

March 6, 9:00 am–12:00 pm

Participants will use visual images, 3D-printed fossil horse teeth, and vegetation and climate data, to discern the relationship between climate change and morphological evolutionary change in horses over time.

Session is free but a refundable deposit of $50 is required. Deposits will be refunded after completion of the program.

Advance registration is required.

Stipends and free programs:

Each participant will receive a $50 stipend upon completing the PD program. They will also be eligible for free virtual programs (through June 2021) for their students, that are related to the PD they have completed. These programs will be taught by HMNH educators.

PDPs

In order to earn PDPs, participants must complete at least ten hours of training. This can include any combination of PD sessions and classroom teaching. One PD session and associated pre- and post-work = 5 PDPs. One PD session + teaching the lesson to your class (including our virtual lesson for your classroom) = 10 PDPs.

This program is made possible in part through a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (MA-10-18-0311)
