The Solar Eclipse 2024 at TPP

April 10, 2024

TPP 403 Profs. Jaffee & Monaghan brought students outside for some experiential learning during seminar to capitalize on the solar eclipse as a "global phenomenon" across generations. The class session, “From Local to Global: Becoming an Equity-minded Global Competent Teacher” was guided by the following question, “Where could you situate a lesson around a global issue or phenomenon that emerged from the local community?” Students linked curriculum resources, oral history traditions, and experiences for teaching about eclipses across content areas while experiencing the solar eclipse together. Students spent time reflecting on local and global issues from their own artifacts or observations in their local community.
