FHSU to host Physical Science and Mathematics Modeling Workshop for middle school teachers
03/07/2006

Middle school teachers will have the opportunity to learn modern and effective teaching methods during a three-week physical science and mathematics modeling workshop from July 10 to July 27 at Fort Hays State University.

Participants will receive a $500 technology package, three hours of graduate credit, a $60 daily stipend, and free housing and parking.

The workshop, supported by the Kansas Board of Regents Improving Teacher Quality Partnership grant, will focus on middle school chemistry concepts.

At the workshop, teachers will learn to improve instructional pedagogy by incorporating the modeling cycle, inquiry methods, critical and creative thinking, cooperative learning, and effective use of classroom technology in instruction. They will also learn the most effective, research-based instructional strategies including effective classroom discourse management, use of standardized evaluation instruments and the use of appropriate technology.
