The Education Development Center is currently recruiting high school earth science teachers for a study called Zoom In: Learning Science with Data. We are look for teachers to pilot one of 3 new data-rich NGSS-aligned lessons over 3-4 class sessions this winter or spring: Climate Change: How is Climate Really Changing?; Plate Tectonics: Where Will the Next Big Earthquake Hit?; and Exoplanets: Where Will We Find the Next Earth?
Each lesson is a teacher-guided blended-learning experience that helps students develop skills in data literacy and evidence-based writing, in addition to core disciplinary concepts. Lessons were created by a team of scientists, educators and data specialists under a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Teachers will receive $200 per lesson as a thank you, in whatever way their school district allows.
