Become a 2017 WGBH STEM Teacher Advisor
Bringing the Universe to America’s Classrooms*, is a WGBH initiative for the development of media-rich digital learning resources to increase students’ engagement with science phenomena and practices in the classroom. Teacher voices are a critical part of our design and production efforts, which is why we developed a teacher advisor program. This is an opportunity for K-12 educators to join our team in the design and implementation of digital media tools that have the potential to impact millions of STEM classrooms nationally.
Produced by WGBH, these resources will feature WGBH and NASA content, and be available free via PBS LearningMedia™. We’re looking for 50 teacher advisors across the grade bands to help us in this mission.
Please complete this application only if you will be a full-time educator in the 2017-18 school year and are able to teach Earth science topics of weather, land and water (K-5) or weather and climate and geoscience processes (6-12) in the fall of 2017.
There are several questions on the application about your classes in the school year 2017-18. We understand that your responses will often be approximations.
The application deadline is February 8, 2017 at 11:59pm EDT. Applicants will be notified of selection by March 2, 2017.
Please refer to our information site, http://www.wgbhteacheradvisors.org/, for an outline of the expectations, benefits and timeline of the program.
