Most Modeling Workshops are described also at http://www.ptec.org/pd .
 
    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 the roles of student or teacher, as they 
practice techniques of guided inquiry and cooperative learning.
 
Modeling Instruction is one of two K-12 science programs designated 
by the U.S. Department of Education as EXEMPLARY.
 
Some sites have stipends, usually for in-state teachers.
Graduate credit is available at most sites.
Pre-service teachers are welcome at most sites.
