EVENT TRAINING WORKSHOPS: Event training workshops cover hands on exploration of all the sampling parameters and data collection techiniques for running the event at your site. The workshops focus on how to maximize student learning while engaging the students in field sampling, strengthening participants' understanding of the various tests and successful sampling techinques, and improving accuracy in data collection. We encourage you to attend one of these events as we use them for sharing ideas, dispensing supplies and networking with other Hudson River educators and enthusiasts. We scheduled several workshops in August and September in different salinity regimes and settings. To sign up for the workshops please complete and return this year's registration form (word) (pdf) OR contact Rebecca Houser or Margie Turrin. All 'event training' workshops run from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM rain or shine. Please bring your own lunch, snacks will be provided.
FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT Rebecca Houser or Margie Turrin.
A DAY IN THE LIFE CLASSROOM: The classroom workshops are designed especially for teachers, focusing on building a strong integration of the Day in the Life event and its data into your existing classroom curriculum to strengthen learning. These workshops are designed to offer age appropriate activities that teachers can do with students before and after the field event. Workshops will allow time for small group focus and discussion to address the varied student ages and abilities. Note that these workshops are NOT a replacement for the full day field trainings.
