SYNOPSIS

Through its Geoscience Teacher Training (GEO-Teach) program, the Directorate for Geosciences (GEO) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) will support projects designed to improve the quality of geoscience instruction, primarily at middle and high school levels. GEO-Teach projects will provide teachers with easy access to high-quality curricular materials as well as the current state of knowledge, and will implement pre-service teacher training and in-service professional development programs designed to enhance middle and high school students' understanding of and appreciation for the importance of the geosciences.

GEO-Teach projects should emphasize the importance of an Earth system science approach in geoscience education and should promote the integration of content drawn from atmospheric science, Earth science, and ocean science disciplines. The relevance of the geosciences to modern society should be made clear by GEO-Teach products and activities.

The GEO-Teach program is expected to have a transformative effect on geoscience education. GEO-Teach projects should take a leadership role in the geoscience education community by providing services and support to that community. GEO-Teach projects should contribute to development of a common sense of purpose regarding geoscience education among scientists and educators drawn from across the geoscience disciplines.
