Groundwork has developed a distance-learning module based upon its successful climate change and resiliency education program created under funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Adapted for presentation in the classroom, the distance-learning module will cover aspects of the changing climate at the global level, remediation efforts and storm preparedness at the local level, and impacts on coastal conditions. With our partners at the Center for Urban River at Beczack (CURB) we will co-host this webinar to introduce Hudson Valley educators to the Climate Change curriculum, demonstrate some examples of our in-classroom activities, and showcase the accompanying web-based application that is packed with resources for teaching about climate science and resiliency. The resources we will be discussing can be previewed ahead of time by following this link: http://www.groundworkhv.org/climate-change-resilience-learning-module/
After participation in the distance-learning module webinar, educators can choose lessons from the Global-Local-Coastal curriculum a la carte based on their individual classroom needs. All segments are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards with target grades ranging from 6-12.
