In 2022, Eos: Science News by AGU will launch ENGAGE (Eos News: Geoscience and Global Events) in partnership with SERC's Teach the Earth. This workshop will introduce educators to the resource, including how to explore Eos's archive of science news reporting; find associated, peer-reviewed classroom activities at Teach the Earth; and create their own classroom activities and share them. ENGAGE is designed to help educators improve science literacy and critical science news consumption in their classrooms. We will address course and curricular objectives with aligned assessment models for using news articles, appropriate to their educational setting. Non-major, 2YC, and those with Spanish-speaking or ESL classes are encouraged to attend.
