Learning Labs are free, multi-disciplinary modules that introduce climate issues through the high school classroom and bring them to life in a student’s local landscape.
From Our Learning Lab Users
I just wanted to take a second to say “WOW!”…we are on day 3 of the new Climate change module and you all really did so great! As a climate researcher turned high school teacher, I can say that this module is top notch and so inclusive of all the materials needed to roll out a climate change module in my classroom!
While doing the (action project) one of the students said, “This is the only reason I come to school now”.
Students were engaged in their lessons when we used the learning labs. Most of the time students at my school are not fully engaged in their learning. Learning lab students had questions, they were reading and watching the videos and excited to begin working each day. My students work at their own pace and the learning labs really allowed for students to work that way. Students were able to spend as much as they needed on each step and the ones that went through quickly had enough to keep busy with that I could spend time with some students that were struggling.
My strongest impression of the Learning Lab is that students were very engaged. There were not many times in class when I was giving presentations or providing direct instruction. Students learned through research, discussion, role-playing, experimentation, application, and reflection.
