All of us at the VA DEN are very excited to begin a new school year. The DEN has some very exciting events coming so please keep your eye on the blog. We have a new leadership council and we will be introducing ourselves over the next few weeks.
With students just coming back from summer vacation why not have them tell you their summer stories. “This year at the DEN Summer Institute (DENSI), participants created projects to be included as professional development assets for use by Discovery Educators. Here’s one from Michigan STAR Discovery Educator, Emma Haygood and California STAR Discovery Educator, Tony Spittell.”
As a Discovery Educator you have access to the DENSI projects and more via the Educator Resources section. Simply search for DENSI2010
