climate science mini-series

Teachers will develop their content knowledge about climate science and the interdisciplinary components of understanding Earth’s changing climate. The 6 session dates will include deep exploration of data and hands-on activities modeling what can be done in the classroom with students. Teachers will work collaboratively to deepen knowledge and prepare for teaching climate science content required by the New Jersey Department of Education. This series is designed to prepare teachers for successful implementation of the science standards with Climate Change incorporated. In addition to teachers, specialists, coaches and supervisors will also benefit from this series.
