Hello Educators!
 
To support you as you adjust to life in the virtual classroom due to COVID-19, we welcome you to the Los Angeles Maritime Institute’s Digital Resources Page. In this new series, Los Angeles Maritime Institute provides tools and resources for online teaching success.
You will find written lesson plans (with California K-12 and NGSS standards attached) linked to ship made videos.
