OERB develops curriculum
The Oklahoma Energy Resources Board has developed curriculum to teach students from kindergarten through 12th grade about science, math, language and social studies as they learn about the oil and natural gas industry. The board offers teachers a $50 stipend to attend a workshop to learn about one of eight available programs. OERB also provides teachers with the necessary materials for each one.
Little Bits: for early elementary teachers (grades K-2)
Fossils to Fuel: for elementary science teachers (grades 3-6)
Fossils to Fuel 2: for elementary science teachers (grades 3-6)
Petro Active: for middle school science teachers (grade 6-9)
CORE Energy Mathematics: for secondary mathematics teachers (pre-algebra and up)
CORE Energy Science: for secondary science teachers (physical science and up)
CORE Energy Language Arts: for secondary language arts teachers (grades 9-12)
CORE Energy Social Studies: for secondary social studies teachers (Oklahoma History and up)
One-day workshops are offered on Saturdays during the school year, but OERB will host two weekday workshops this summer. The first is set for July 18 at Sapulpa High School, with the other planned for July 25 at Westmoore High School.
Teachers can register for the workshops online at OERB.com.
