Facilitator Preparation


This is a suggested 1-session curriculum that educators can use over a 50-minute period.  Before using the curriculum, we suggest that educators become familiar with the material including reviewing the teacher-focused crash courses.

Educators should go through each unit and download the PowerPoint for class presentation. Educators should also download the accompanying activities for in-class activities. Speakers' notes are embedded in the PowerPoint.  Activities are meant to be printed for students before class begins.
