BRRRRRR!!! Welcome to the Circle of Illumination Science Education site! The mission of this company is to provide high quality professional development to teachers who teach grades 3-8 in the fields of atmospheric and earth science and geography.
Weather is a complex phenomena made up of several variables that each change over time but also often interact with each other. Fortunately many weather-related phenomena can be sensed or observed directly as well as illustrated with data that is available through a number of government web sites which fosters sense-making.
JOIN US for the first of a series of free webinars to be offered through the spring of 2021 to help teachers learn how to use a variety of government web sites in the teaching of weather and other phenomena while deepening their own science content mastery. REGISTRATION NOW OPEN for the first of these webinars - focused on weather- that will be on SATURDAY, FEB. 13th, from NOON - 2 pm. This workshop will be tailored to the needs of 6th grade teachers in Minnesota who will be, or already have been, teaching weather for the first time under the revised academic science standards. Severe winter weather in late 2020 and early 2021 will be used to illustrate the influence of air masses on weather at specific locations. To register contact Dr. Amy Lilienfeld at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to register: FEB 8th at 5 pm.
STAY TUNED for INFO on FUTURE WEBINARS that will be OFFERED in mid-March, mid-April and mid-May.
