Round Table Discussion
Suzanne Traub-Metlay, Western Governors University
Advocating for geoscience education involves being aware of issues affecting K-16 Earth Sciences instruction and, in a collaborative effort, speaking up to safeguard or advance learner access to accurate, rigorous, meaningful teaching. The Advocacy Committee is currently engaged in reviewing and updating NAGT's position statements. We monitor and address emergent issues ranging from international climate policy to local school board initiatives that affect public school curriculum in Earth Sciences. Come talk with Advocacy Committee members and consider how you can support students, educators, and schools who care about robust learning in geosciences.
