University of Nebraska, Omaha: Earth Science for Educators part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Courses
This Earth science content course is offered in the summer for practicing K-12 teachers working toward a Certificate in Urban Education or a Masters of Education. Teachers explore the interdisciplinary nature of Earth science, learn about Earth science standards, participate in Urban Field Trips, and develop inquiry-based units of study for use in their classrooms. This course is part of 9 years of collaboration between the Colleges of Education and the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Nebraska, Omaha, and the Omaha Public School District. One faculty member from the Department of Geography and Geology teaches this course. For Dr. Shuster's reflections on the course and its design, see Earth Science for Educators: Role in the Program
