PD Pathways: Attending a Science Institute
Ashmann, Scott; Marcou, Darcy; Lange, Melissa; Konitzer, Andrea
Science and Children, v48 n4 p61-65 Dec 2010
For two weeks during Summer 2009, three elementary school teachers--Darcy Marcou, Melissa Lange, and Andrea Konitzer--participated in a science institute directed by Scott Ashmann, a science education professor at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The purpose of this institute for elementary school teachers was to learn (a) more about Earth and environmental sciences and (b) ways to enhance their science teaching. In this article, they share three stories related to two types of science questions that emerged from this program; stories that could be replicated in your classroom. (Contains 1 figure.)
