CALL FOR PRESENTERS: EDUCATOR'S WORKSHOP NOVEMBER 11, 2012 IN CONJUNCTION
WITH AMERICAN CETACEAN SOCIETY CONFERENCE IN SAN DIEGO, CA

Workshop Description:

Whales and Humans have had a conflicted relationship throughout the years.
Teachers - both formal and informal - can help to place that relationship in
context.  At the same time, whales are an engaging topic that can be used to
teach subjects from science to technology, engineering to math, literacy to
art.  In this workshop, learn about the connections between whales and
humans.  Get ideas for how you can incorporate whales into your classroom.
Come home with hands-on activities to share with your students.

Call for Speakers:

We're looking for speakers to present 15-45-minute talks and activities on
the following subjects:

*	Whale Biology - hands-on activities that teach basic information
about whales.

*	Scientific Method - Activities that use data to teach about whales.

*	Activism - Activities that empower students to act to help whales.

 

Talks should be geared toward elementary, middle, high school and/or
informal educators.
