Teachers Workshop 2011: Understanding Our Connection To the Earth

EdGEO Teachers Workshop

A valuable workshop for Elementary through Secondary Teachers from the National Capital Region and across Ontario and Quebec!

This two day workshop will provide elementary, middle and secondary teachers with instruction, lesson plans, activities, classroom resources and field trip ideas that will assist and encourage them to integrate Earth Science concepts into their teaching. 

Friday's in-house program will be held at Carleton University and will be delivered by Earth Science professionals and educators from across Canada. The program will include a choice of thematic sessions and hands-on activities, with some sessions provided in French. Participants will receive an extensive resource kit to take back to their classrooms.

Saturday's optional full-day field trip will provide a tour of the Geoheritage of the Ottawa region as well as ideas for conveying basic geoscience concepts via field-based activities.

This workshop is being run in conjunction with the annual GAC/MAC Conference, Ottawa 2011.  The workshop registration fee will include access to the scientific sessions, including a session on Thursday May 26th which will discuss Earth Science Education.  There will be limited space for the workshop and field trip, so please register early.
