NASA Resources for Teaching Global Climate Change Education for High School - 45hr

STEM417

Teaching about global climate change can be a challenging task, but using a problem-solving approach and STEM methodology (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) will engage students and help them understand the causes and effects of climate change. In this course, the teachers will explore the basics of these 21st century teaching and learning approaches as they learn about the difference between climate and weather and how our actions and nature are affecting the environment. This course is designed to enhance teachers’ content knowledge of climate change, provide guidance about teaching climate change using effective STEM instructional strategies, and facilitate the integration of NASA data models and NASA resources, as well as PBS resources from WGBH’s Teachers’ Domain and from programs like NOVA in their classroom instruction.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available.)

Points/Credit Hours: 45 recertification points (3 graduate credits available for extra cost after start of course-enrollment instructions will be sent to you by the facilitator) graduate credit - not through James Madison University

K-12 STEM Using NASA Resources (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) - 45hr

AKSTEM400

This course seeks to provide a way to teach mathematics and science in an integrated format that blends technology, engineering, and problem-solving into activities that are engaging but are also aligned with Virginia math, science, and technology standards. Because NASA has already been instrumental in creating STEM lessons, we will focus on their resources. The effective use of instructional technologies that appeal to 21st Century Learners will also be a significant strand for this course. Four STEM lesson plans, each focusing on one of NASA’s Mission Directorates and utilizing different instructional technologies, will be major projects. These include Aeronautics, Science, Exploration, and Space Operations.

Points/Credit Hours: 45 recertification points (0 graduate credit)

Audience: K-12 Math, Science, Technology, and Engineering Teachers
