Recycling in Scare-City: Integrating STEM and Economic-Decision making using Model Eliciting Activities (MEAs) about Scarce Resources

Thursday, October 18, 2018

5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. (a light dinner will be served)

USF Stavros Center, College of Education, Tampa Campus

During this K-12 workshop, we welcome two guest speakers.  Jodi Pushkin, Tampa Bay Times Newspapers in Education (NIE) manager who will share some new recycling resources from the NIE that are aligned to Florida Standards.  Then, Angel Danger, from Hillsborough County Public Schools will demonstrate some Model Eliciting Activities (MEAs), which are real-world lessons that integrate STEM and Economic Decision-Making.  In addition, we will use some movie clips as hooks to make reduce/reuse/recycle decisions about scarce and renewable/non-renewable resources.  Teaches who attend will have access to lessons and resources, aligned to Florida Standards in CTE, Economics, English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science.  We will also provide links to our workshop resources website with embedded movie clips, lessons, and other resources teachers can use to teach the ideas.  Space is limited, sign up early!
