September 2007 Meeting: Marc Frevola: Using herps for learning in the classroom
|Date:||September 5, 2007|
|Location:||Cincinnati Nature Center, Rowe Woods directions|
Marc Frevola has been a middle school teacher in Ludlow, Kentucky for 19 years. He has been a member of the GCHS for the same number of years, joining the society when he moved here in 1988 to take a teaching position.
In the last three years, Marc's 7th grade classes have managed to achieve the highest test scores in science in Northern Kentucky as measured by the state mandated CATS test. This success is due to the most part on the active role that herps play in Marc?s classroom. His program will explain what animals he keeps, what is involved with keeping them in the classroom and what role they play in student achievement.
In addition to using herps in the classroom, Marc performs countless hands-on. educational "outreach" presentations for the GCHS, and has developed a reputation as an excellent presenter, who actively gets his audiance invloved in the event.
