Support for attendees will include a $200 stipend upon completion of the two workshop days.
The education component of the NSF Track-1 project involves development of STEM K-12 curriculum modules and conducting teacher workshops.
Participants will strengthen their understanding of three-dimensional science teaching and receive support in meeting South Dakota’s K-12 Science Standards.
South Dakota science teachers — elementary and middle school — are eligible to participate in a face-to-face teacher workshop and receive a stipend. Reduced tuition graduate credit will be available from BHSU (Black Hills State University). Space is limited, so register early.
The learning workshop uses a combination of guided independent learning, collaborative online learning, and hands-on science activities and experiences.
Participants will also learn about science and engineering research underway at universities across our state and become familiar with a curriculum module that relates to the research.
New 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. Teachers will also build their capacity with three-dimensional (3-D) instruction, integrating disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and cross-cutting concepts.
For payment of the stipends, we are using PaymentWorks as a secure means of providing us with your W9 and banking information. An invitation will be sent through the PaymentWorks portal to onboard new individuals. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
