We’ve just scheduled a one-day training for teachers in the New Hampshire seacoast region for November 27. In this six-hour workshop, teachers will get their hands on a variety of resources to help make learning about electricity, the environment, and climate change fun and engaging for students in grades 6–12.

This training will also support teachers’ understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and how to make students’ thinking visible. We will discuss formative assessment strategies, phenomena, and storylines, and, most importantly, provide training on how to use all the VEEP gear that teachers can borrow to support energy and climate education.

Teachers will leave with an example storyline that supports the Electricity, Renewables, and Climate Change equipment kit, and each teacher will receive a free kit rental.

When: Monday, Nov 27, 8 am to 3 pm (with a 1-hour break for lunch)

Where: Robert J. Lister Academy, Room 10, 35 Sherburne Road, Portsmouth, NH 03801.

Who: Middle and high school teachers

Cost: $175/person. Includes 6 hours of PD and a free kit rental.

Facilitators: Mariah Keagy, energy educator for the Vermont Energy Education Program, and Brian Betournay, program manager for the New Hampshire Energy Education Project.
