    L2R Expectations 2012   From learning to research is indeed a transformational way to look at teaching and learning from both student and teacher perspectives. Throughout the past academic school year I participated in many professional developments, content specific and non-content specific.  Just about 100% of the time the facilitator reads off some statistical data augmenting a point about learning methodologies or pedagogies that sometimes captured my attention.  I feel more often than not, that I am only a learner in this situation,...

  My expectations for the Learning to Research project and the summer institute is to gain knowledge on incorporating Climate Change into a Math Curriculum.  Climate Change is a very in depth topic and working in the Globe program previously aligned the topics with the science strands only.  We are encouraged to cross-curriculum and it would be great to see how the subject can be incorporated into other areas besides science.  It especially helps when we work with other teachers to team teach. In addition to cross-curriculum, I expect to gain knowledge on how...

This institute fits in to my on-going overall annual professional goal: learn something new in Science. A specific goal for this year is to acquire training in order to participate in real time scientific investigations. An added benefit will be to share data with other schools both within my own school system and globally. I am also looking to gain the confidence and acquire strategies needed to engage my students in authentic Earth...


Posted in: Primary Audience: Teachers

I have been a GLOBE teacher since 1999.  In the first few years, my school was very active in atmosphere testing as well as hydrology.  However, we lost our atmosphere station in Hurricane Katrina, and from that year until this past school year, I did not teach Environmental Science.  I returned to teaching Env.Sci. this past school year, and renewed my interest in the GLOBE program.  I took a couple of refresher workshops on atmosphere testing and hydrology during the past few months and am ready to get to work!!! I signed up for the L2R program and summer...
