How could a course like this be available for students on our Student 2.0?
Would we have to find a teacher first? Or bird enthusiast students then turned teachers?
Or could this be an announcement of sorts in a calendar or events forum?
Announcing the Online Summer Course!
If you are planning to teach 7-8th grade in the coming school year, and have an interest in bolstering your inquiry teaching skills, please consider taking our five week online course (July 12-August 15, 2010). Participation is free and fun! Participants receive a stipend and a unique opportunity to learn about birds and inquiry while working virtually with teachers thoughout the country!
Student Research Publications
If you haven't already, I'd like to encourage you to download our free Investigating Evidence module. Are you planning to do bird investigations with your students this year? Keep in mind that we're currently accepting research report submissions for our student publications--we'd love to include yours! Please send any materials your students have been working on by June 1, 2010.
Wishing you a happy, green, and safe spring. On some sunny day, please consider take a few moments to listen to some singing birds with your kids!
