TTIP Texas Teacher Internship Program: 1996 Curriculum Implementation Plans.
Walenta, Brian T., Ed.
In 1989, the Texas Alliance for Science, Technology, and Mathematics Education began placing teachers at industry sites as part of its Texas Teacher Internship Program (TTIP). TTIP is a competitive program for science, technology, and mathematics teachers who serve as summer interns at industry and university sites in order to experience real-world applications of the subjects they teach. In 1996, a total of 12 teachers interned at seven sites and were required to develop a curriculum implementation plan (CIP) which illustrated how they would translate the summer experience into the subsequent year's classroom curricula. This document is a compilation of the curriculum implementation plans developed by the teachers. Topics include measurement errors, physical science/environmental science, composite science, biology, chemistry, ecology, technology, astronomy, geology, life science, mathematics, and endocrinology.
