Let's have a Share-A-Thon


Professional Learning Community Share-A-Thon
Rescheduling for February 2018 at Driver's Village


This is a prime time of the year to reflect on how the school year is going and what changes need to be made. We are offering teachers the opportunity to share best practices and perspectives related to:

  • Successful learning activities, experiments, classroom management. Sharing "stuff".
  • Continuing your planning for NYSSLS implementation.
  • Items on your mind.

Modern Climate Science Modeling 
Are you curious about the climate models utilized by climatologists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Weather Service (NWS)? Would you like to introduce your students to some simple climate models that help scientists to better understand what is happening with global climate?
By attending this Peer-Led training session you will gain access to some of the best climate models and websites available. Here you will learn how to use the American Meteorological Society's Conceptual Climate Energy Model (AMS CCEM) to investigate the basic concepts underlying the global-scale flows of energy to and from Earth. In addition, you will walk away with DataStreme's  Earth's Climate System Teacher Guide with four investigations to be used with your students.
During the workshop session we will go through a simple activity to be used with the AMS CCEM titled "Follow the Energy!"
Driving Question
How does energy enter, flow through, and exit Earth’s climate system?
Educational Outcomes
To consider Earth’s climate as an energy-driven physical system. To investigate fundamental concepts embodied in considering Earth’s climate from a dynamic perspective and through the use of models.
The flows of energy from space to Earth and from Earth to space set the stage for climate, climate variability, and climate change. After completing this investigation, you should be able to describe fundamental understandings concerning:
• The global-scale flow of energy between Earth and space.
• The impact of the atmosphere on the flow of energy to space.
• The effect of incoming solar radiation on Earth’s energy budget.
• The likely effects of energy concentrations and flows on Earth system temperatures.

PRESENTER: about Katie St. Denis
Katie St. Denis has 11 years of experience in education, teaching Earth Science, Living Environment, and Environmental Sciences to 9th – 12th grade students at Solvay High School in Central New York. During that time, she continued to take on graduate level course work and field study opportunities to support her content knowledge in Earth and Environmental Science topics, including advanced atmospheric science courses through SUNY Brockport and paleontology digs in North Dakota and Montana. Katie is currently focused on making the transition to project and problem based learning in an effort to improve student learning outcomes.

After completing the three American Meteorological Society DataStreme courses: 
Atmosphere, Oceans, and Climate System, Katie was selected to participate in the Project Atmosphere at the National Weather Service Training Center in Kansas City, Missouri. The Project Atmosphere is a two-week intensive and comprehensive teacher professional development program designed to provide participating educators an opportunity to master atmospheric education topics dealing with sensing, analyzing, and forecasting weather so that they may go on to provide Peer-led Training to educators in their home region
