The teams created two virtual teaching boxes, one of which is on Dynamic Weather. A teaching box is an online framework that fully supports a teacherís need to present a unit of instruction about the Earth system. It is organized for immediate use, but modifiable by teachers to better meet their needs. Each box takes an inquiry-based learning approach and integrates concepts, teaching outcomes, resources, activities, teaching tips, standards, and assessment strategies.
This session will demonstrate the Dynamic Weather teaching box. Participants will be able to view the contents of the box: the overarching concept map, instructional strategy, activities, and resources, etc. They will also see how to modify the box and create a new teaching box using the tools, strategies, and templates provided.
