K-12 Science Teacher Workshop

July 20, 2021 - July 22, 2021

Event Category:

The education component of the NSF Track-1 project involves development of STEM K-12 curriculum modules and conducting 3-day teacher workshops.

South Dakota science teachers — elementary, middle school and high school — are eligible to participate in two different, virtual three-day teacher workshops and receive a $300 stipend for each. One graduate credit per workshop will be available from BHSU (Black Hills State University) at a discounted tuition of $40. Space is limited, so register early.

The last of the two workshops will be on July 20-22 (Tuesday-Thursday) and it is titled “Planning for Sense-Making in Three-Dimensional Instruction” — participants will also learn about one of five new curriculum units that you will select on the registration form:

  • Elementary School: Pond Scum
  • Elementary School: What’s in My Water Bottle?
  • Middle School: Dead Zones
  • High School: Water Quality
  • High School: Biofilms in the Body

Finally, all participants will receive a copy of the Ambitious Science Teaching book. Featured topics will include planning for culturally relevant, phenomena-based instruction, facilitation of equitable discourse, and using sense-making to drive learning.
