From our own biology to the smartphones in our pockets, science plays a role in every aspect of our lives. For example, diamonds are formed at great depths within the earth’s mantle, enduring there for billions of years until they are brought to the surface in an explosive volcanic eruption. Welcome to EDUO 9505 – Earth Science. The purpose of this course is to create a thorough well thought out unit on earth science. To that end, participants will not only be provided with resources on earth science, but will also explore the next generation science standards as well as the importance of STEAM in education. By meeting the requirements of this class, participating teachers will earn one semester unit of graduate level extension credit from Dominican University of California, a fully accredited university.
After completing this course, you will demonstrate or indicate:
This course aligns with all of the next generation science standards associated with earth science. These standards can be found at www.nextgenscience.org
