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.

EET Workshops Implementation Template (Microsoft Word 30kB Sep4 07)

This file contains a template for sharing the classroom projects and activities you carried out after participating in an EET Data Analysis Workshop. Right-click on a PC or control-click on a Mac to download the template from the link above.

When you have participated in an Implementation Discussion (below), completed the Implementation Survey, and posted your completed template and your accompanying PowerPoint or text document and commented on what others have done, you will be eligible for a $120 stipend. If you implement several chapters, you must complete the template, the survey and the representative student work for each chapter. Rita Freuder will be in touch with you for the stipend payment procedure.

If you have any questions, please email

Implementation Survey

Please fill out an implementation survey for each workshop you implemented. If you presented three workshops, then you would fill out the survey 3 times.

Create an Account in the SERC CMS

If you are an Eyes in the Sky Ambassador, you already have an account in the CMS. This project is hosted by the Science Education Resource Center (SERC) at Carleton College. The Content Mangagement System (CMS) enables us to have online discussions. Before you can engage in an online discussion with your colleagues, you will need to create an account in the SERC CMS.
