Share a Teaching Activity for Pre-Service Earth Science Teachers

Please use this form to describe an activity that you use to prepare pre-service or in-service Earth Science teachers. This could be an activity you use in a geoscience course that is focused on helping future teachers teach Earth science, an activity you use in a science methods course that makes use of Earth science content, a practical experience that gets future teachers into the K-12 classroom to teach about Earth Science, or any other activity that involves preparing teachers to teach Earth Science. Please complete all fields. You are encouraged to upload files, such as a student handout, to accompany your example. SERC staff will use the information you provide here to create a web page describing your activity. This process may take a few days.

Avoiding duplicate activities: Before you complete this form, please search the SERC activity collection (opens in a new window) to see if the activity already exists in our collections. This is especially important if you are contributing an activity that is based on another person's activity. If your activity is very similar to one that is already in our collections, please email SERC for options on how to proceed.

Copyright: You retain all rights to your contributed work and are responsible for referencing other people's work and for obtaining permission to use any copyrighted material within your contribution. By contributing your work to this web site, you give SERC a license for non-commercial distribution of the material, provided that we attribute the material to you.

Supporting Materials
You may upload up to five files to accompany your submission. If you have more than five files, we recommend that you upload the first 5 using this form and then attach the rest by editing your activity page after you hit the submit button.

If you upload files as part of your activity remember to consider their final use in deciding on appropriate formats. Materials that other teachers are likely to modify should be provided in easily editable formats (plain text, Word files), whereas materials that will be likely only used verbatim are most convenient in formats that are universally readable (PDF format is often a good choice).

Once this form has been submitted we can work with you to integrate the downloadable files into the text of this section.

Please be sure all materials you upload can be freely redistributed. For more information about copyright as it applies to materials you are sharing through this site please check our more detailed discussion of copyright (opens in new window).
