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 Education.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.
