This course is designed as a one-day workshop for STEM teachers of grades 3 – 8. After completing the workshop, participants will adapt one of the lessons presented in the workshop for use in their own classroom.
During the workshop, participants will examine STEM Modules on Earth’s climate and climate change impacts developed by Sally Ride Science. Each module presents engaging lesson plans based on the 5E-learning model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate) and aligned to NGSS and CCSS. Participants will have the opportunity to play the role of the student in a 5E lesson sequence by engaging in discussions about the impacts of climate change, performing hands-on activities, increasing their content knowledge and learning about new careers in climate science. After the training, participants will gain access to the Sally Ride Science modules. They will customize one of the 5E lessons from either the Earth’s Climate Module or the Climate Change Impacts Module for use in their own classroom and submit their customized lesson plan as well as feedback on classroom implementation
Note: This is an inservice course for Sally Ride Science.
