CEETAL: Connecting Earth & Space Science, Environmental Science, Technology and Literacy

Description

The Connecting Earth and Space Science, Environmental Science, Technology, and Literacy professional development course was developed by Coconino County Education Service Agency and Northern Arizona faculty in Physics and Astronomy for K-7 teachers. The overarching purpose of the project is to increase grades K-7 teachers’ level of understanding of earth, space, life, and physical science concepts, enhance student academic achievement in science, technology, and literacy, and build capacity in Northern Arizona to support continued efforts in science education.

Learning Outcomes

Participants in the course will:

  • Learn science concepts related to earth and space science and environmental science, through hands-on investigations and inquiry-based challenges;
  • Experience using A Framework for K-12 Science Education;
  • Gain competence and confidence in using technology to integrate science literacy, and other content areas to help students develop pathways of conceptual understanding across content;
  • Have experience with computer simulations, virtual reality, and coding; and
  • Become part of a network of school leaders and work with teaching peers to enhance science education at their school.
