Are you looking for new ways to make science and social studies education more interactive and fun for your students while earning professional development or graduate credit? Population Education has you covered!
The course is for science and social studies educators of grades 6-12. If you teach Environmental Science, World Geography, Human Geography, Biology/Life Science, World History, or the AP counterparts, this course is perfect for you. Presented topics focus on global development, human quality of life, natural resources, and environmental sustainability.
Participants will discover student-centered learning strategies that use contemporary issues and real-world data to explore the impacts of human population. You’ll acquire dozens of classroom-ready, standards-aligned activities and resources that you can apply immediately to your classroom. The course is asynchronous, meaning students can work at their own leisure and pace. There are online discussion boards, weekly journals, and a final project, all built to provide you with meaningful feedback and materials to use with your own students.
The course is led by University of Michigan-Dearborn professor, Gail Luera, who has decades of experience in secondary education and online course facilitation. Professional development clock hours or university credit can be earned for successful completion of the full four weeks.
**The next course offering will be in Summer 2018 and will be a 4-week accelerated course (a condensed, fast-paced format). To be placed on the priority registration list for the Summer 2018 semester, please contact Lindsey at email@example.com.
