L2R TakeAways

I'll be heading out from Boulder on Friday with so many more tools in my teaching toolbox!

-- Myriad resources for teaching my students about weather, climate, and how to help them clearly understand the difference.

-- So many insights into the climate change debate and how best to approach this often volatile subject in a way that focuses on data for science literacy, not emotion and misinformation.

-- A GLOBE recharge! It's been a number of years since my last GLOBE training and this opportunity to revisit the phenology and atmosphere protocols - and know that the updated tools will be arriving for student use first off in the new school year - has me happily plotting and planning for an exciting, engaging year ahead!

-- A sense of community; knowing there is a cadre of like-minded, hard-working teaching professionals in classrooms across the country and in the GLOBE offices all working together on the same mission is very encouraging!

All the best to each of you---safe travels, and I look forward to our virtual connections in the months to come!

PS...BIG thanks to Julie and the team for a fantastic institute, and under very trying circumstances!
