Navigating The Golden Compass: Using Fantasy to Teach Science and Philosophy in the Middle Grade

Karen Boran and Sharon Hartrich, presenters

In this hands-on, highly interactive workshop, participants will explore how fantasy – specifically, Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass – can help students understand complex scientific and philosophical concepts in concrete, tangible ways.  Teachers will receive curriculum materials, including unit plans, study guide questions, and more.
