Unique professional learning Opportunity for middle school and high school physics, chemistry and biology teachers
An MSP grant awarded by the Michigan Department of Education is providing a unique opportunity for high school teachers of Chemistry and Physics in Michigan that supports current HSCE and the Next Generation Science Standards. The professional learning is designed as an immersion model where teachers learn from national facilitators and Michigan practitioners using the same techniques and materials they will utilize with their students. Participants will rotate through roles of student and instructor as they practice and engage in guided inquiry and cooperative learning. Strategies for raising the level of discourse during classroom discussions and student presentations will be emphasized.
