SCIENCE THEMES for NGSS 

Cornell Lab of Ornithology's BirdSleuth K-12 Education Program offers a variety of opportunites for online training. All webinars are interactive. The instructors  provide background content, highlight new and relevant educational resources, and allow discussion for successful implementation of such information and activities. Each webinar is roughly 50 minutes with 10 minutes allocated for questions. Only live webinars will be allowed for CTLE credit. Two hours credit will be offered to NYS Teachers who complete the following requirements: 

  1. Attend and participate in the full live webinar.
  2. Complete an online evaluation/questionaire.
  3. Sumbit a customized lesson plan for your class or send samples of student work from a lesson that you implemented.
