Peabody Teachers Collaborative on Global Change
FREE 3-Day Summer Teacher Institute
The Museum is excited to offer a professional development opportunity for educators who teach CT Science Standard 4.2: All organisms depend on the living and non-living features of the environment for survival. With science content addressing Common Core ELA informational text reading, research and writing standards, the institute will focus on global change in its many forms including climate change and its many associated effects on ecosystems and living things. The institute will feature a brand new event-based curriculum unit developed cooperatively by area teachers and Museum educators. The curriculum is event-based and object oriented.
