Bringing the Universe to America's Classrooms


2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6, Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

The vision of students learning disciplinary core ideas in the context of science practices, as outlined in the NRC’s A Framework for K–12 Science Education (2012), marks a significant shift in science education. Digital media tools and resources are increasingly integral to engaging in scientific practices.

WGBH, in collaboration with NASA, is working with teachers across the country to design and evaluate media-based educational Earth and space science materials for K-12 classrooms. Resource are designed to engage diverse learners in core ideas and practices.

In this video, Anny, one of our teacher advisors, shares her classroom experience using these resources in an elementary classroom to engage her students (including English learners) in making observations and discussion of evidence.
