Experience or expertise/projects of note:

Long-term interest in learning progressions for environmental science literacy.  Human Energy Systems in the Carbon TIME project focuses on global carbon cycling and how humans are affecting it.

Reasons I’m excited about this project:

I am particularly interested in (a) assessments using learning progressions, (b) working on helping students to understand how scientists analyze, quantify, and communicate about uncertainty and risk, (c) preparation for future learning, and (d) some ideas about PD–helping teachers manage school expectations around management, content, and grading.
