STEM and Student Skills: Join Our EWA Seminar in Los Angeles
Are you an education journalist? Do you want to know more about how schools are preparing students for future workforce, and what changes are coming to your local classrooms when it comes to computer science and math instruction? Are you familiar with the latest research on how students learn, and whether current instructional methods are aligned with those findings? Would you like to be a more confident writer when it comes to reporting on student demographics?
We’re going to tackle all of this (and much, much more) at our upcoming seminar at the University of Southern California - STEM and Beyond: Strengthening the Skills of Students and Journalists. I’m particularly looking forward to discussions of how science teachers are handling the politics of teaching evolution and climate change. For more on that controversy, check out my Five Questions one of our seminar speakers, Prof. Gale Sinatra of USC’s Rossier School of Education.
