The ocean is rich with phenomena that are unknown to many. On January 25, 2021, from 10am-11am, URI’s Inner Space Center (ISC), in partnership with Next Gen Education, will offer a free professional development (PD) session for Rhode Island middle and high school educators. Ocean Exploration is Phenomenal: Using Inner Space Center (ISC) Resources for Phenomena-based Lessons and Units is a PD session designed to provide science educators with opportunities to identify and use ocean science phenomena in their lessons.
In this session participants will experience how phenomena are used as drivers for student engagement within three-dimensional lessons aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Using ISC media and educational resources, learn how to identify phenomena through an ocean science lens, understand best practices for student engagement and explanation of phenomena, and how phenomena drive lessons aligned to the NGSS. Phenomena-based resources will be shared.Registration is required and the program will be limited to the first 50 registrants.
