Team members met here at UCMP for two weekend workshops this spring to initiate discussion and production of a series of virtual teaching boxes. Each box will be made available on the DLESE website and will support the teaching of a geoscience concept or set of concepts. The boxes may include activities, teaching tips, supporting standards and benchmarks, metadata about the resources, reviews, geo-referencing, and assessment materials. The team will continue their efforts in Boulder this summer in preparation for a presentation at the California Science Education Conference in San Jose next fall. For more information about DLESE,
