Introduction to Modeling Instruction 2018

During this one-week introduction to the principles of Modeling Instruction we’ll introduce several aspects of modeling such as facilitating student discourse, the modeling cycle, multiple representations in problem solving, and model-based curriculum design.

Biology Modeling 2018

This workshop will explore a teaching method known as Modeling Instruction™ and how it can improve and deepen your students’ understanding of crucial concepts in biology.

Best Practices in Earth Science: Meteorology

Join us for a packed sequence of activities that enable students to develop robust particle models of air and water that they apply to understand meteorological contexts including air pressure, wind, energy transfer, phase changes, humidity, precipitation, and clouds.

Physics/Mechanics Modeling

The workshop will develop and focus on fundamental physics models such as constant velocity; uniform acceleration; free particle (balanced force); constant, unbalanced (net) force and more, while utilizing a process-oriented inquiry approach.

Designing for Discourse and Sensemaking in Physics Class

A workshop exploring discourse and sense-making in physics classroom.

Computational Modeling in Physics Intensive with Bootstrap/Pyret

This workshop will explore how teachers can use coding in the physics classroom to creatively involve students in solving complex problems using the computer.
