Weather and Climate Across the Globe (for middle/high school teachers)

The week long course will be taught using the method of the Five E’s, each describing a phase of learning (engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate). Teachers receive a stipend, one graduate course credit at CSU, and a box of science tools to use in their classrooms. Potential science tools included heat packs, which show that liquids release heat when they freeze, solar cells to charge batteries, and infrared goggles to see infrared radiation outside. More importantly, participants will leave the course with the confidence and knowledge to teach their students about weather, climate, and climate change.
