At the end of September, our CliMES team came together with a group of high school teachers from our district partner – Lincoln Public Schools – to begin collaborating on development of the CliMES curriculum module. We are working to develop a 6-week module designed around EzGCM for LPS’ 9th-grade Geoscience course. The proposed module will be aligned with national, state, and district standards, with a particular emphasis on HS-ESS3-5:
Analyze geoscience data and the results from global climate models to make an evidence-based forecast of the current rate of global or regional climate change and associated future impacts to Earth systems.
We’re looking forward to continuing these discussions and working with our collaborating teachers as we move forward with development of the curriculum module, planned for pilot implementation in spring, 2018.
