K-12 Science Teacher Workshop
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 first of the two workshops will be on June 29-July 1 (Tuesday-Thursday) and it is titled “Fundamentals of Three-Dimensional Instruction & Biofilms” (previously offered in 2020). Participants will also learn about the curriculum unit, “Stuck Like Glue — Stuck on You.”
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.
