Connecting Models and Evidence
August 4-6, 2021
Join us August 4-6, 2021 for the virtual Earth and Environmental Science Educators' Institute, which will provide professional development in the use of Model-Evidence Link (MEL) activities centered on current Earth and environmental science topics. These 3-dimensional (core ideas, practices, crosscutting concepts) instructional scaffolds facilitate critical thinking, evidence-based reasoning, construction of scientific explanations, and collaborative argumentation to support scientific reasoning within challenging Earth science topics. This three-day institute is free, and a $750 stipend will be provided! Applications are open to middle and high school teachers who teach Earth and Environmental Science courses and topics in the NJ-PA-DE area.
Application Deadline: May 14, 2021. Decisions will be made by May 19, 2021.
