Professional Learning Events

Science teachers, join us at the Paley Center for Media for a wonderful opportunity!

In this workshop designed especially for NYCDOE science teachers at all levels, Paley Center educators will moderate a discussion using the film The Martian to demonstrate best practices for using film and other media to enhance science curriculum content, and will additionally discuss methods for using film as a tool for teaching critical thinking and viewing skills.

Participants will lead the workshop and screen clips to discuss scenes that could be used to support chemistry, physics, Earth and space science, ecology/ecosystems, and engineering/design-based learning. Programs from the Paley Center archive may also be screened and compared to the film. Participants will receive and view a copy of the film prior to the workshop. (While we will be focused on the film, the teacher guide for the classroom edition of the book can be accessedhere.)

This event will take place on Thursday, April 12, 2018 from 4:30PM to 6:30PM.
