Reasons I’m excited about this project:
I am excited because teachers are ready and hungry for this content. The “extras” that will be included such as ESA, local adaptation, and supporting teachers in not only science content but supporting them in teaching controversial topics will be a challenge but are also exciting to learn about and work on.
