Upcoming Summer Intensive Open

Chemistry 1 Modeling 2018

Come learn a fantastic approach known as Modeling InstructionTM and how it can help improve and deepen your students’ understanding of crucial chemistry concepts.

Assessment & Standards-Based Grading 2018

This three-day workshop will guide you through the steps to set up your classes for standards-based grading.

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.
