ELEM 635: Earth System Science for Elementary Teachers (3)
This 16-week elective graduate level course has been developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). It is structured as a collaborative, inquiry-based model and is held in an electronic environment where elementary teachers can study Earth System Science. This course is designed around essential questions that graduate students will address as they teach concepts about Earth System Science to their elementary students. As a result of research, interaction, reading, and reflection, participants will create a comprehensive Unit Plan composed of sphere lessons that help their elementary students address essential questions about land, living things, water, and air and their relationships within the context of Earth System Science.
