Tuesday, July 9, 2019 to Wednesday, July 10, 2019
9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Come to a two-day seminar at the Lawrence Hall of Science, designed specifically for high school chemistry teachers, to support the implementation of the Chemistry in the Earth System course.
We will use ACLIPSE data-based activities related to climate change and ocean acidification, as a means to demonstrate NGSS-aligned Earth science content for the course. The goal is to prepare teachers to understand both the Earth science content required to teach the instructional segments outlined in the CA Science Framework, as well as three-dimensional instructional design and best practices for teaching the NGSS. We will deconstruct and identify important aspects of these activities, and we’ll discuss tools for how to engage in NGSS curriculum planning for the rest of the chemistry course, as outlined in the CA Science Framework
A stipend will be provided, along with breakfast and lunch for both days. Please see the attached NGSS High School Chemistry Seminar flyer (PDF) for more details.
Space is limited. Applications are due by June 1st, 2019.
Development of this program was supported by the Rochelle and David Ridgway Fund and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce, under award NA14SEC0080004.
