Ready to teach climate change? This program is designed to support science teachers in grades 6-12 in incorporating the new climate change standards into your already-tight curricula. This workshop will help you understand how climate change occurs and the ways it affects society, and individual members of society, differently. We will explore phenomenon- and inquiry-based methods to meet New Jersey’s climate change standards using an interdisciplinary and participatory approach that reflects the pedagogies of inclusion and equity in formal and informal learning environments. Workshop activities will include climate change modeling, an interpretive hike, water quality assessment (by land and/or canoe), and analyzing and interpreting data. We’ll be working both indoors and outdoors (rain or shine) on the beautiful campus of the New Jersey School of Conservation. Whether you teach in a classroom or in an informal setting, you will gain skills and strategies to enable you to address this important issue at a grade-appropriate level. Follow up support will be provided!
