Meteorology: An Educator's Resource for Inquiry-Based Learning for Grades 5-9 DLESE Reviewed Collection
This guide aims to assist educators in instilling interest in learning about meteorology by allowing the learner to take increasing responsibility for his/her learning. It is written as a supplement to existing Earth and space science curricula. The guide is not intended to be a complete course in meteorology; it should be used in conjunction with lectures, discussions, textbooks and other teaching material. The learner should understand "how we arrive at what we know," rather than memorizing what we know. This publication was developed to enhance the understanding of inquiry-based learning from the educator/teacher?s perspective as well as from the learner?s perspective.
