Paleontology for Educators Workshop at Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology

This message is primarily directed towards science teachers in southern 
California. If you know anyone who might fit this criterion, please feel free 
to forward it to them.

The Paleontology for Educators Workshop will provide teachers with a 
museum-based, hands-on introduction to paleontology, the study of past life. 
Each session will include a short course on paleontology, evolution, and earth 
science, with the aim of illustrating how to present this material in an 
interactive way to students.

Each of four sessions will be tailored to science standards for specific grade 
levels. All sessions will be held at the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology, 
1175 West Baseline Road, Claremont, California 91711. Presenters will include 
paleontologists Dr. Andy Farke and Dr. Don Lofgren, along with other museum 

The workshop is free, and funded in part by a grant from the E.E. Ford 
Foundation. Participants receive workshop materials, lunch, snacks, and $500 
that may be applied to hiring substitute and/or purchasing classroom supplies.
