Ms. Generaux selected to write curriculum for the entire District

ECP’s own Ms. Generaux, who has taught 8th grade Science for the last six years, has been selected to write science curriculum that will be used throughout Oakland Unified in coming years. Ms. G (as she is known to her students) was chosen because of her past record of excellent instruction and students’ high marks on the Science portion of the California Standards Test (CST). “It’s interesting,” said Ms. G, “and it’s so important to get these (new) lessons into the hands of teachers. That’s where the best feedback is going to come from. ”

Ms. G will be part of a multi-person team lead by staff from WestEd and other members of the Central office science team. Ms. G continues to represent the ECP Family well, both inside and outside the school.
