Facilitating Teacher-Scientist Collaborations: Teaching about Energy through Inquiry.
Caton, Elaine; Brown, Fletcher; Brewer, Carol
This paper explores the effectiveness of teacher-scientist collaborations in bringing inquiry into pre-college classrooms. The Montana Organization for Research in Energy (MORE) and the University of Montana sponsored two institutes on "Teaching about Energy through Inquiry" for middle and high school teachers and energy scientists in 1996 and 1997. The primary goals of the institutes were to: (1) facilitate partnerships between teachers and scientists; and (2) increase the use of inquiry as a teaching method in energy education. This paper briefly characterizes these institutes and describes the assessment efforts used to evaluate the effectiveness of the institutes. Closing comments on the institutes' efforts in effectively facilitating collaborations between teacher and scientists are provided. Contains 20 references. (CCM)
