Archive: Opportunities to Build Your Weather, Ocean, and Climate Science Literacy by Leveraging the AMS-Cal U Partnership, June 25, 2019

Web Seminar Archive Digital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) and California University of Pennsylvania (Cal U) partnership fosters Earth Sciences literacy by offering K-12 teacher professional development which empowers teachers to implement STEM concepts in K-12 classrooms using Geoscience data to increase weather, ocean, and climate science literacy. These lessons are then transformed by teachers into discipline- and age-appropriate lessons.

For more than 25 years, the AMS has directly enhanced K-12 teacher preparation and practice, and ultimately student learning through the DataStreme Project, Project Atmosphere, and the Maury Project. Over 22,000 teachers have completed one of these content-rich, pedagogically-sound courses and earned tuition-free graduate credit for doing so.

The California University of Pennsylvania (Cal U) is one of NSTA's Online Course Providers.

Presenters: Chad Kauffman, Wendy Abshire
