Next for Science Education in America?
Join CSTA for the annual meeting of members! CSTA President
Rick Pomeroy will deliver an update on the state of
the association and the state of science education in
California. The development of the Next Generation Science
Standards over the next few years holds the potential
for some exciting changes in science education. Learn
how CSTA has been a leader in this important process.
This session will also include a keynote presentation.
Jim Brazell will host a large group interactive keynote
session initiating dialogue among the membership about
what’s next for science education in America. Our facilitator
will tell stories about emerging technology, jobs, communities,
and schools while helping us connect the dots between
what we honor and cherish in teaching and the future.
Jim’s passion is the pursuit and elevation of the voice
of teachers, students and communities in the transformation
of American education afoot today. You can learn more
about Jim at his blog theartofthefuture.org.
CSTA is pleased to announce that Ed Begley, Jr. will
be the closing keynote speaker for the 2011 California
Science Education Conference.
For years Ed Begley, Jr. has been known not only for
his acting talent but also for his passion for "living
green". Currently, he is the co-star of the hit
Planet Green series Living
with Ed, a look at the day-to-day realities
of “living green” with his wife Rachelle Carson, who's
not quite as enthusiastic about a rain barrel as he.
The series has just finished airing its 3rd season.
His first book, Living Like Ed, hit the streets
nationally in February 2008, and the second book, Ed
Begley's Guide to Sustainable Living came out in
August of 2009.
Join CSTA for an entertaining and enlightening look
at ways we can educate ourselves and our students on
how to "live simply so that others can simply live."
