PEGGY'S SEMINAR 11/17: DEVELOPING ENVIRONMENTAL LITERACY AND CLASSROOM COMMUNITY BY ENGAGING YOUTH IN PARTICIPATORY SCIENCE 

Participants will learn about the academic and social emotional benefits of engaging students in outdoor participatory science projects in a distance learning setting. We will look at the direct connections to NGSS as well as how place-based inquiry can benefit students emotionally, and how teachers can use students’ personal observations to build classroom communities and connections while focusing on environmental literacy.

 

SIRC has always been designed to deepen teachers' understanding of science and to provide innovative ideas, lessons, and classroom strategies. This year, more than ever, we want to re-dedicate ourselves to those principles.

 

Each night there will be 6+ different 90- minute workshops available to choose from. Topics will include science, pedagogy, social emotional learning, and distance learning.
