Background For Teachers:
TGLL (Think Globally, Learn Locally) is a NSF-sponsored science education program based at the University of Utah. TGLL partners graduate students in the biological, geological and atmospheric sciences with middle and high school teachers in the Salt Lake City School District to enhance and promote inquiry-based science teaching and learning.
TGLL aims to promote learning around five environmental themes: habitat alteration, pollution and disturbance, invasive species, climate change, and infectious disease. Graduate students work with teachers to design authentic science activities that apply science core concepts to larger scientific issues.
This field trip was originally designed for schools with an assigned TGLL graduate fellow, however it could be adapted for use by others.
For schools working with TGLL fellows, these individuals will possess needed background knowledge for the implementation of each station.
For schools not associated with TGLL, specific background for each station is provided within the station specific lesson plan.
Student Prior Knowledge:
Specific front loading for each station is found within the station specific lesson plans.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
3. Demonstrate Understanding of Science Concepts, Principles and Systems
4. Communicate Effectively Using Science Language and Reasoning
5. Demonstrate Awareness of Social and Historical Aspects of Science
6. Demonstrate Understanding of the Nature of Science
