Short Description:
The GPM Master Teacher program involves having a small pilot group of 3 middle school teachers develop and implement Earth/Space Science lessons with middle school students. Teachers will use existing NASA resources to develop lesson plans and then implement them as a part of a quasi-experimental study to attempt to gauge the impact of replacing existing curriculum with curriculum that includes NASA resources. This project has been designed to gauge the impact of using alternative lesson plans, which include NASA resources,on the acquisition of content on middle school students, and we will also develop both lesson plans and activities which will be sent to SMD Product Review. http://pmm.nasa.gov/education/
