Identifying exemplary curricula for effective inquiry in Space Science
  • What and where are the best NASA (and other) curriculum resources for engaging pre-service teachers in space science inquiry?
  • How can these curriculum resources be used to address questions tied to science education standards?

{Greg Schultz and Bill Waller}

AAS/FINESSE workshop, 3-4 January 2009

What qualities should curriculum resources have for effective classroom use?
  • Do they elicit meaningful questions?
  • Do they involve strategies to pursue evidence?

 Data collection, organization, and analysis

 Interpretation of results

  • Do they engage students in creating, communicating, defending, and revising conclusions?
  • Do they encourage identification of new questions?
  • Do they address different learning modes?
  • Do they address science education standards?
  • Other qualities?
what nasa or other curriculum resources have you found useful
What NASA or other curriculum resources have you found useful?
  • Write down a few space science curriculum resources that you think lend themselves to active inquiry.
  • Share your suggestions.

Further curricular resources …
  • See your list of Earth and Space Science Education Resources

 What are worth using?

 What are less helpful?

  • Are there other exemplary NASA or other education resources that would benefit future teachers of science and those who prepare them?
now it s your turn assess the qualities of curriculum resources
Now it’s your turn!(Assess the qualities of curriculum resources)
  • Peruse the handouts and other web links.
  • Select 2 resources that relate to your state space science standards.
  • Compare and contrast these 2 resources re: desired qualities.
  • Find scientific questions which the data set(s) can address.
