Content, activities, and case studies are presented in a variety of ways. This pedagogical strategy makes this tutorial applicable to many ability levels. Tables, question and answer sections, mapping, graphical organizers, engaging images, photographs, diagrams, and case studies.
See below for the section descriptions found within this tutorial:
-Background information: air pressure systems, hazards to life and property, requirements for tropical development.
-Storm category differentiation: depression, storm, hurricane, and major hurricane.
-Tropical formation environments and keys to development and/or dissipation.
Hurricane climatology also included.
-Hurricane season: breakdown by month with specific case studies incorporating track, cone of uncertainty, and most likely formation environment. Hurricane Alma, Hurricane Dennis, Chesapeake Hurricane of 1933, Cape May Hurricane of 1821, Hurricane Inez, and Hurricane Gordon.
-Basic terminology and features: Saffir-Simpson scale, cone of uncertainty, best track, landfall, and hazards (power outages, beach erosion, flash flooding, torrential rain, storm surge, damage, winds, and weak tornadoes).
This works well for any level but is GREAT for special education students or college prep learners that need an alternative assessment and may not be great at traditional labs.
Also, perfect for homeschooling!
WIDE RANGE OF ABILITY LEVELS! The application to a diverse body of learners, whether it be age or ability level, is predicated on the fact that the instructor determines the difficulty level of the whole activity or part of the activity based on what information is given and what information is not as well as how verbal questions are presented to the student(s).
This has been used as a pre-class, lab/activity, study guide, review, and assessment. This is an effective teaching tool one on one, in small groups, and as a class when using a Smart Board/Promethean Board/Projection.
A guaranteed hit all around!
A great addition to your meteorology teaching library.
Within the classroom, this activity has been consistently very successful and acclaimed by students in grades 3rd – 8th within multiple types of schools - public, private, and charter.
