What causes variation within a population of living things? How can variation in one generation influence the next generation? In this session, variation in a population will be examined as the "raw material" upon which natural selection acts.

SIE14026: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Evolution and the Tree of Life

Why are there so many different kinds of living things? Comparing species that exist today reveals a lot about their relationships to one another and provides evidence of common origins. This session explores the theory of evolution: change in species over time.

SIE14027: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Energy Flow in Communities
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

Communities are populations of organisms that live and interact together. The structure of a community is defined by food web interactions. The process of energy flow is the focus of this session as the interactions between producers, consumers, and decomposers are examined.

SIE14028: Essential Science for Teachers: Life Science - Material Cycles in Ecosystems
Subject Area: {"35bf1210e6727959a7a88a00462db959":{"option":"Science","icon":"","default":1,"delete":0}}

Credit Hours: 1

Studying an ecosystem involves looking at interactions between living things as well as the nonliving environment that surrounds them. Life depends upon the nonliving world for habitat, as well as energy and materials. In this session, material cycles will be explored as critical processes that sustain life in an ecosystem.

SIE14029: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Earth's Solid Membrane: Soil

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula.

Dirt… earth… soil… it forms where Earth’s rocky crust meets the atmosphere. Although it is common to everyday experience, people are often surprised at the complex nature of soil. In this session, participants will explore the processes of soil formation by examining how soil appears on a newly formed, barren volcanic island.

SIE14030: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Every Rock Tells a Story

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

Every rock has a story to tell if you know how to read it. Within the unique composition and arrangement of materials that compose different rocks, you can find patterns that are evidence of the processes that formed them - processes that represent chapters in Earth’s dynamic history. In this session we will focus on discerning events in Earth's past from rock clues. This session begins a multi-part investigation into the kinds of stories rocks can tell.

SIE14031: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Journey to the Earth's Interior

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

The theory of plate tectonics represents a unifying set of ideas that have great power in explaining and predicting major geologic events. In this session, we continue to explore this theory by focusing on how it is possible for tectonic plates to move. This leads us to examine Earth’s internal structure and the dynamic nature of its interior, which reveals another story of the Earth that rocks can tell.

SIE14032: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - The Engine That Drives the Earth

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

What do the lush, tropical islands of Hawaii have in common with the barren, cool summits of the Cascade Mountains in the northwestern United States? Both provide dramatic evidence of plate tectonics in the form of volcanoes and earthquakes. In this session, we investigate how these phenomena are connected to the movement of plates. As we examine what happens at and between plate boundaries, our focus shifts to the mechanisms deep within the Earth that drive what we observe at its surface.

SIE14033: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - When Continents Collide

The Essential Science for Teachers courses are designed to help K–6 teachers gain an understanding of some of the bedrock science concepts they need to teach today’s standards-based curricula. 

From the volcanoes that encircle the Pacific Ocean in the “ring of fire” to the peaks of the Himalayas at the “top of the world,” mountains are perhaps Earth’s most dramatic landforms. Can we find a pattern in how and where mountains form? In this session, we build upon our understanding of plate tectonics to take a closer look at the connection between plate boundaries and mountain formation. In the process, we continue our exploration of rocks and the stories they can tell.

SIE14034: Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science - Restless Landscapes

If most mountains are formed in the same way, why do they look so different? In this session, we explore the forces sculpting the ever-changing landscape of the Earth. One particular landform, Cape Cod, a peninsula off Massachusetts, is the setting for our investigation.
