Professional Learning Opportunities Calendar

Professional Learning Calendar

Initial value

The CCCOE Curriculum and Instruction Department provides professional learning opportunities in a variety of areas. The 2019-2020 academic school year areas of focus were developed with input from our Contra Costa COE Curriculum Council. Our 18 school districts and COE student programs provided valuable feedback regarding professional learning needs.

Nature Journaling Workshops with John Muir Laws

Workshop - Audience: K-12 Teachers and Instructional Leaders
Nature Journaling Level 1 on October 22 and 29, 2020  - 3:15 pm -5:15 pm
Nature Journaling Next Level on November 3 and 10, 2020 - 3:15 pm - 5:15 pm
Nature Journaling is  collecting and organizing your observations, questions, connections and explanations on the pages of a notebook using words, pictures and numbers.  The process is creative, fun, and opens your eyes to wonder.  It helps you discover, think, remember, and use new information, and integrate it with old.  The skills can be learned by anyone and develop with deliberate practice.  Keeping a journal of your observations, questions and reflections will enrich your experiences and develop observation, curiosity, gratitude, reverence, memory, and the skills of a naturalist.  You do not need to be an artist or a naturalist to begin.  These are skills you will develop as you go.

Register: Nature Journaling Level 1 - Oct. 22 and 29.                                                               Register: Nature Journaling Next Level - Nov 3 and 10.
