Designed for earth science and environmental science high school teachers, our educators’ workshops help facilitate the needs of educators within the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) and surrounding counties. Teams of high-school teachers, research faculty and GEOPATHS facilitators will design new educational resources to design lessons to teach essential standards for earth and environmental science in North Carolina. Below is a description of this year’s program to be held in Jordan Hall on NC State’s campus.
University/K-12 Collaboration Workshop
Initial meeting July 10-12th, 2019; Later meeting TBD
Applications Required by Friday, May 24th, 2019 (see below)
This two-part workshop will involve a small group of teachers (10) and serve as a pilot program to develop teaching resources in collaboration with five faculty researchers from the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at NC State. A pair of teachers will work with a researcher to design a lesson that can be incorporated into classes during the subsequent school year. Participating teachers will be expected to work together in small teams to create the lesson, to use the lesson in a class, and to submit a “teacher story” about their experience using the lesson including suggestions for modifications (as needed). Participants can receive up to $2,000 stipend for completing all aspects of the program.
