The LINCS Community is pleased to host a special online discussion in the Science group in April: Using Polar Sciences in Adult Basic Education Programs. From April 7 – 17, join guest polar scientists and educators in an online discussion on how science, particularly polar science, can be used as the context for teaching adult basic skills.
Guests will share their work and advances in the polar sciences along with science educational materials, many which have been developed by science educators at the National Science Foundation, Office of Polar Programs and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Our guests will discuss the current state of research in polar regions and how these resources can be integrated in adult education programs to teach critical reading, writing, and math skills.
Instructors and program administrators interested in incorporating science into their adult basic education classrooms are encouraged to participate in this special online discussion by asking questions and sharing their experiences and lessons learned when integrating science in the classroom.
Please join the Science group to participate in this special online discussion.
If you have any questions about this announcement, please contact us.
