- potential future resource for marine education -- pretty sure the "Pilot Lessons" offer below is limited to US teachers -- possibly in the continental US. . . but the on-line stuff may be of use.bpForwarded message:From: "Bruce.Moravchik" <Bruce.Moravchik@...>Date: October 29, 2010 12:12:08 PM EDTTo: Scuttlebutt <scuttlebutt@...>Subject: [SCUTTLEBUTT:5943] Pilot Lessons for NOAA and NSTA - Make $200/Lesson!
For almost 10 years NOAA National Ocean Service (NOS) Education has worked with the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) to create high quality classroom and professional development resources and programs for educators on coral ecosystems, estuarine ecosystems, the ocean’s effect on weather and climate, climate change, etc. These have included free Web seminars, face to face symposia at NSTA conferences, interactive tutorials and multimedia, lesson plans using online data and organized links to educational resources. You can find many of these resources here:

NOS Education and NSTA are working on a new resources for educators – a module (aka SciGuide) focused on tides and currents – and we need your help! We are seeking formal classroom educators to pilot and provide feedback on nine lessons being developed at the 9-12 classroom level.
The fine print:
- We will need one teacher “piloter” per lesson (a teacher can pilot more than one lesson).
- The teacher needs to pilot the lesson in his/her classroom.
- The students must be in grades 9-12.
- The teacher will be required to provide feedback about the lesson via a feedback form.
- The teacher will be required to provide a two to three paragraph description of how s/he used the lesson in their classroom. This summary will be included in the SciGuide and be read by other teachers using the lesson.This will be described in more detail in the feedback form.
- We will need a piece of completed student work. More information about this will be included in the feedback form.
- We will need at least one photograph of the activity. This photograph can be of the students participating in the activity or it can be a photograph of the set up of the activity. It cannot show the faces of the students, i.e. the students cannot be identifiable.
- The teacher must be able to pilot the lesson and provide all feedback by January 31, 2011
- Teachers will be paid $200/lesson!
If you are interested in piloting one or more lessons, email Leisa Clark at: lclark@... no later than November 12, 2010 and cc Bruce Moravchik at bruce.moravchik@.... Teachers will be selected on a first come first serve basis.
Do something great for your students, your education community, and make some extra cash this holiday season!
