Enhancing GLOBE through Partnerships
We all have experienced a few outstanding teachers who made a difference in our lives, teachers who were able to motivate us to do our best, and to instill a love of learning that continued beyond the classroom. Good teachers engage students through passion for the subject, creativity in the classroom and constant encouragement. They use a wide variety of methods, experiences, assignments and materials to be sure that their students are achieving cognitive objectives. In many schools, it is GLOBE activities that provide teachers with the scientific tools they need to teach students about the environment in which they live, but the GLOBE classroom becomes most dynamic when the teaching of science enhances the development of a diversity of skills.  >>
