Ambassador Program: Earth Exploration Toolbook Discussion & Implementation
After you have presented an EET chapter to other teachers and/or carried out a classroom project or activity with your students, you may participate in an Implementation Online Discussion.
In the Classroom
The case study of an EET chapter serves as an example of one way in which you might apply the data analysis techniques of the chapter to explore issues or concepts in science, technology or mathematics. Some teachers have implemented the EET case studies as written. Others have adapted the use of the tool, dataset, and analysis techniques to meet their curricular goals.
Sharing Classroom Projects and Activities
Download and complete the template below to share the results of how you have incorporated the techniques of an EET chapter into your teaching. Let us know how you used the EET in the classroom by describing the projects and activities that you carried out with your students. In addition to this template, post a PowerPoint presentation or a text file with screen shots to document your results. Include examples of representative student work (without names) and any handouts or introductory materials you may have provided to accompany the project/activity.
If the materials you used come from other sources and are copy written, please cite where they come from. If you developed the materials you used, then please cite them with Your Name, Copyright Year. For example, Susan Smith, Copyright 2010.
