Modeling Workshops Summer 2018

Dear members of the science education community,

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. Models and theories are the purpose and the outcomes of scientific practices. They are tools for engineering design and problem solving. Thus, modeling guides all other practices.

       

 

This summer, Modeling Workshops™ are hosted in physics (mechanics, E&M, waves), chemistry (first and second semester), biology, physical science, middle school science, curriculum development and a few one-week long Intro to Modeling sessions: http://bit.ly/AMTA2018workshops
