Designing High Impact Field Experiences at Bonneville Dam Using ELA Performance Tasks
March 16 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pmFree
4th-12th English Language Arts and Science teachers are invited to participate in this workshop at the Bonneville Lock & Dam, starting on the Oregon side of the Columbia River. Participants will learn more about the dam and its placement, history, benefits, and challenges. PEI FieldSTEM Coordinator Chad Mullen, Natural Resource Specialist Robin Norris, and Park Ranger Lesley McClintock will teach participants how to use the site to create high-impact field experiences for students.
Workshop participants will:
- Explore and experience two “English Language Arts performance tasks” on the topics of “hydropower” and “renewable vs. non-renewable energy”
- Understand how they can use these powerful teaching tools to highlight assets at the dam to facilitate meaningful field experiences and to deepen student learning
- Tour many locations at the dam site including the fish ladder viewing area, the hydropower generators, hydropower powerhouse, and more
