CONNECT-ED: Weather, Climate & Global Climate Change in the K-12 Classroom
July 16-18, 2019, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. in Lawrenceville, NJ

During this summer institute, we will explore the Core Ideas related to weather, climate, and global climate change and discuss strategies to drive instruction and assessment using relevant phenomena related to these topics. During the first two days, participants will investigate three phenomena related to weather, climate, and climate change: one at the K-5 level, one designed for middle school, and one for high school. Participants will then be guided in how to use grade-level appropriate Core Ideas to construct explanations. At the conclusion of the Institute, participants will plan and share their own weather, climate, or climate change lessons, complete with three-dimensional performance tasks and assessments.
