Webinar Description

Nationwide, high school teachers are being asked to teach outside their areas of expertise. Because many states and districts are not including the Earth and Space Sciences into their course structure, concepts associated with geology, atmospheric and oceanic science, and astronomy are necessarily being incorporated into biology, chemistry, and physics courses. Specifically in physics or physical science courses, there are tangible and relevant connections to the Earth and Space sciences. We will explore these through example integrated lessons from the American Association of Physics Teachers that can be taught immediately upon return to the classroom.
