    Participants will develop the ability to implement scientific and mathematical modeling strategies to be utilized with Modeling Curriculum in their classrooms. During Modeling Instruction, teachers guide students through the development, application, and refinement of scientific models. Modeling instruction incorporates computer technology, laboratory practice, grade aligned content, and insights from science education research.

    i3 participants who did not attend the 2014 workshop must participate in the entire three weeks of the 2015 workshop. i3 participants who attended the 2014 workshop are welcome to join, but attendance is optional (note: three-day "refresher" courses are also offered to ESI participants who joined us in 2014).

    Please indicate whether you are participating in person at MCESA or through IVL (Interactive Video Lab) videoconferencing at your school (option for i3 participants only).

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact William Buckley.

    This workshop is suitable for middle school science teachers who want to create student-centered, active-inquiry classrooms. The workshop will be taught using a robust pedagogy developed at Arizona State University. Course content is organized around models to increase its structural coherence for the middle school (6-8) science curriculum, including units from physical, life, earth and space science. Participants will be supplied with course materials and will work through activities alternately in the roles of student and teacher. This methodology allows student thinking to become more visible through whiteboard presentations, Socratic questioning and peer review.


    Student activities are organized into modeling cycles that engage students systematically as scientific practitioners. The teacher guides students with a focus on improving the quality of student discourse, their accurate use of scientific terms, and their ability to express ideas and arguments with clarity. This method also promotes students’ confidence to conduct scientific investigations independently, where the teacher primarily supports them in developing more powerful modeling tools. As a result, lecturing is primarily used to scaffold new concepts and principles as needed.

    To learn more about the Modeling Instruction Program and the American Modeling Teachers Association (AMTA), please visit http://modelinginstruction.org.

    You will be joined by participants of the i3 grant Engineering STEM Identity.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Gale Beauchamp.

    If your students take MCESA assessments in PCG, and you like data, then consider this workshop.

    Part 1 will focus on writing good items for quizzes that you can use to formatively assess students throughout the year.  Part 2 will focus on advance uses of PCG including loading quiz items into the system, using the system to deliver either paper quizzes or computer-based quizzes, and analyzing the data with more advanced reports.  You can choose to attend only one or both parts of the workshop.  If you attend Part 2 only, please bring some assessment items with you.  They can be multiple choice, short answer, or essay types of questions.

    Please contact Andrea Calhoun at andrea.calhoun@mcesa.maricopa.gov if you have any questions regarding registration.
