2013 Middle/High School Science Academies
Sioux Falls, SD
Time: 8 a.m. / 4 p.m. (local time)
Trainers will model 3-dimensional instruction (Scientific and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts from the Framework and NGSS) through activities and provide video evidence of this instruction occurring in South Dakota classrooms. The video footage is based on model lessons that have been aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and South Dakota Science Standards. Teachers will leave with 3-dimensional lessons that can be immediately implemented and will gain an understanding of the vision for science education in South Dakota. Teachers will also leave with knowledge of the 3-dimensional lesson-building process, which they can use to advance their curriculum.
This is a two day regional training for middle school and high school science teachers. There are 10 locations with two trainings occurring per location. At each location, one training will be for middle school and one training will be for high school. Up to 60 teachers will be accommodated at each location, with 30 at each training. Stipends of $125/day will be paid to each attending science teacher, for no more than two days of training. Therefore, teachers should only sign up for one training. A minimum of 20 teachers will be required to host a training.
