Integrating Best Practices in Middle School Science

At St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN

August 18-21, 2015

Workshop Description

We’ll design this workshop around the goals that are relevant to you and your school.  We will offer interactive sessions that let you explore and practice best practices in middle school science teaching.  You will work together with other middle school science teachers in your field to develop and refine teaching materials that will help you implement new practices in your teaching about a specific topic or standard.  We have modest funds available to support purchase of supplies that you will need to implement your plans.

We encourage groups of teachers from across grade-levels within the same school or district to apply.  Teachers will receive a $300 stipend as compensation for their time, with up to $100 additional stipend available for participation in follow up events/reflections in October and during the spring.  For teachers who live more than 50 miles from St. Olaf College, we have some funds available to reimburse travel and lodging expenses.
