Please share the information on the 2015 Modeling™ workshops with your
science education community.
Thank you in advance.
Please let me know if you are not the correct contact person and I will
remove you from my data base.
50 Modeling Workshops in high school and middle school sciences will
be offered this summer, in many states. Most workshops are two or
three weeks long. CEUs; optional graduate credit, stipends at
grant-funded sites. Modeling Instruction is research-informed.
Registration is open for all workshops, and they are filling up fast. Please
plan your summer professional development and think about taking a
Modeling Workshop. Ask your school administration to help pay.

ABOUT MODELING INSTRUCTION:
Modeling Instruction is designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program and
a Promising Educational Technology program by the U.S. Department of
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.
