    Education Standards

    Community Science (for Secondary Educators)

    Community Science (for Secondary Educators)

    Overview

    By the end of this course participants will…

    • Understand how local phenomena interact with the Next Generation Science Standards, climate change, ecosystems, and people in a community.
    • Experience how local phenomena and field investigations can build scientific understanding.

    Collaborate with facilitators and fellow teachers to make climate science engaging and meaningful for 6th-12th grade students.

    During this workshop, participants will explore how local phenomena and investigations in local communities can be centered in a Next Generation Science Standards storyline to connect to the interests and identities of students and support understanding of the impacts of climate change. The course employs an example phenomenon storyline to model strategies.
