EARTH SCIENCE EDUCATION INTO THE 21ST CENTURY: ONE TEACHER’S EXPERIENCE AS A DIG TEXAS INSTRUCTIONAL BLUEPRINT EDUCATION INTERN
During the summer of 2015 I participated in the project as a member of a four-person interdisciplinary team of Education Interns (master teachers). As an Intern, I assessed selected educational resources on the basis of credibility and pedagogical suitability, and determined the appropriate placement of resources within the units. In addition I developed scaffolding notes for classroom implementation and wrote background information on topics as needed.
In this presentation I share my experience as an Education Intern and describe the process whereby a plethora of phenomenal resources became organized into 750-minute teaching units, packaged in a way that facilitates use by Earth Science educators to teach any upper-level high school Earth Science course.
