International Seabed Authority
Students in Mrs. Woodford's Science class participated in a meeting of the International Seabed Authority. Students took on different roles including representatives from different nations, oil company executives, and marine biologists to address their essential question: Who do natural resources in the Artic belong to - countries that border the Arctic, or the world? Students developed claims and provided evidence from their research to support their positions. So much evidence of authentic engagement, active listening, synthesizing research from a variety of sources, and building assertiveness to respond and refute the claims of others. These students were SO impressive!
