Galileo Educator Network Professional Development Workshop - Chattanooga
In partnership with the Astronomical Society for the Pacific (ASP) and NASA, The McCallie School invites you to the Galileo Educator Network (GEN) Professional Development Workshop on March 7th and 8th. Become a NASA Galileo Educator through this 15-hour workshop for pre-service and in-service K-12 teachers, and learn about implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and elements of the Common Core in your teaching. Within the context of astronomy and space science, you will experience hands-on inquiry activities, reflect on the nature of science, demonstrate how students can argue from evidence and even practice integrating NGSS into your existing science lessons.
This workshop requires a $20 deposit (refunded upon completion) to attend. Registration is required to secure workshop materials. The first 15 educators to sign up will receive GEN materials to take back to their classrooms, including a copy of the ASP’s “Universe at Your Fingertips 2.0” DVD-ROM of activities and resources.
