Short Description: 

NCLB defines success exclusively as test scores, fostering strategies that compromise substantive
learning. This session focuses on conceptual and theoretical frameworks for exploring this issue.

Enhanced Earth System Teaching Through Regional and Local (ReaL) Earth Inquiry

Short Description: 

The Problem:

How can we support teachers in using local and regional geology to teach Earth science in an inquiry-based way? In 2006, 24% of Earth science teachers were not Earth science certified (CCSSO, 2007) and many do not know regional geology. Is it reasonable to expect teachers who do not have an in depth background in the discipline or a deep understanding of the local environment to lead meaningful Earth system science inquiry for their students?

How can we meet the content and pedagogical needs of teachers of Earth system science?
