The Exploring the Environment – Global Climate Change (ETE-GCC) project announces that five modules are ready for pilot testing: Global Temperatures, Ice Caps and Sea Levels, Human Health, Volcanoes, and Drought. These new modules present an updated theoretical approach to problem-based learning (PBL) that focuses on scientific inquiry, use of satellite imagery, and incorporating of teaching strategies recommended in the Next Generation Science Standards. ETE-GCC welcomes the insights and recommendations from middle and high school teachers who are willing to pilot test these problem-based learning activities. Pre-service teachers are also welcome to participate in the process as well.
If you would like to participate in the pilot program, please sign up by sending an email to ete (at) cet.edu, or by requesting access to the site by selecting “Log In” at http://ete.cet.edu/gcc/.
