Dr. Kathryn Frank and graduate student Sean Reiss presented the “planning for coastal change” curriculum developed for the Cedar Key Summer Youth Program in 2012 to 25 middle and high school teachers from across Florida who were attending a symposium on climate change at the University of Florida on May 24, 2013. For the presentation, Sean and Kathryn created a handy Planning for Coastal Change Curriculum brief. The brief describes the lessons and activities for each of the six weeks of the program, as well as tips for success. The teachers praised the project for involving children and youth in the planning process, and for sharing the methods with the teachers for use in their classrooms and communities.
