The LMU Center for Urban Resilience (CURes) has hosted six annual urban ecology professional institutes on the campus of Loyola Marymount University. Designed to create synergistic research and teaching opportunities, the Institute introduces teachers and informal science providers to our urban ecology curriculum and inquiry-based research activities designed for students in grades 4-12.
The CURes Institute sets participants on the acceptance path to our Urban Ecology Teacher Academy for the upcoming school year. Curriculum is aligned to NGSS with meaningful connections to CCSS math and language arts, history/social studies and restorative practices.
More information on the 2017 Summer Institute will be posted as it is available. See below for last year’s content.
