Project ATMOSPHERE Peer Training Resources

Following the training of the Kansas City summer workshop, teachers conduct two or more single-topic sessions on an on-going basis, for their peers within their home states, using single topic teaching materials developed by AMS specifically for this purpose. These peer-led training sessions, one to two hours in length, are offered on a variety of meteorological topics.

To report workshop results, the workshop presenter fills out the Teacher-Trainer's Questionnaire, and each workshop participant fills out a Participant's Questionnaire. Mail these evaluation questionnaires to the AMS DC Education Office at the address below.

Please email us to list anticipated workshop topics and numbers.
