Teachers Boost Data Literacy
If you need trusted training on data literacy and Next Generation Science Standards, who you gonna call? California’s Tijuana River Reserve!
San Diego Unified’s Teachers on Special Assignment reached out to the Reserve after identifying a need for data literacy and Next Generation Science Standards training among their members. In response, Reserve education and research staff partnered to train 27 middle school and 10 high school teachers in 2019.
The partnership between the Reserve and the district—which is California’s second largest—was a first. Through it, the Reserve was able to build data competency among the teachers, and by extension, the students who will grow up to be coastal California’s next generation of scientists, decision makers, and community members.
