STEM Ed Announcement: Modeling Workshops



This is not a UMass Amherst program.
 Contact information is below.
 ==============================================       
 
 50 Modeling Workshops in high school and middle school sciences will
 be offered this summer, in many states. Most workshops are two or
 three weeks long. CEUs; optional graduate credit, stipends at
 grant-funded sites. Modeling Instruction is research-informed.
  
 Registration is open for all workshops, and they are filling up fast.
 Please plan your summer professional development and think about taking a
 Modeling Workshop. Ask your school administration to help pay.

 ABOUT MODELING INSTRUCTION:
 Modeling Instruction is designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program
 and a Promising Educational Technology program by the U.S. Department
 of Education.
 Modeling Workshops are peer-led. Content is reorganized around basic
 models to increase its structural coherence. Participants are supplied
 with a complete set of course materials and work through activities
 alternately in roles of student or teacher, as they practice techniques
 of guided inquiry and cooperative learning.
