The NGSS requires teachers to design activities that make all standards accessible for all students. Participants will engage with a variety of tasks that have multiple entry points, challenge and engage all learners, as well as foster meaningful group collaboration. We will take a deep dive into climate change highlighting the crosswalk between earth and space sciences and other disciplines. A variety of global change phenomena will be used to engage participants in a three-dimensional lesson.  While the Understanding Global Change (UGC) curriculum, developed by scientists at UC Berkeley, will drive the lesson, the main focus will be on equitable teaching practices that create opportunities for all students to learn.  Even with a well-thought out and perfectly executed lesson, it is still a tremendous challenge to engage all students. This workshop will provide strategies to both design and implement authentic tasks to help address that challenge.
