Inquiry Teaching Methods: Grounding STEM Education Programs in Science Practices
Thursday, 06/09/2016 (03:30 PM - 06:30 PM)

- March 31, April 7, 14, May 12, 19 and June 9 from 3:30 PM - 6:30 PM
- May 7 from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension is offering a workshop based on the theory and vision of the Next Generation Science Standards to integrate science and engineering practices within the STEM disciplines.

 

Inquiry Teaching Methods is geared towards K-12 teachers interested in exploring ways to support classroom teaching in moving toward an inquiry-based approach in which students take more responsibility for their learning. Participants will practice shifting their existing curriculum to align with Science Practices that are within the Next Generation Science Standards.

 

Inquiry-based learning is an approach that involves exploring the natural and man-made world around us in a manner that leads to questioning, observing, investigating, testing, and discussing with others what results were found.

 

Participants will learn the fundamentals of inquiry-based instruction and how to integrate NGSS science and engineering practices, including how to ask investigable questions, planning an investigation, and communicating results. They will conduct an inquiry investigation on their own and learn how to “shift” or change existing science activities into authentic inquiry-based activities that integrate NGSS science and engineering practices.

Build Your Grazing Plan
Thursday, 06/16/2016 (All day)

The online classes will run from February 29 through June 16. During that time, there will also be four in-person meetings:
- Monday, February 29 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM - Kick Off and Orientation in Boscawen
- Wednesday, April 6, time TBD - Animal Nutrition in Boscawen
- Saturday, May 7, all day - Fencing Clinic in Harrisville
- Thursday, June 16, time TBD - Forage Identification and Inventory in Litchfield

This 16-week class will be primarily conducted through an online learning program. It is designed for farms that graze ruminant animals (cows, sheep, goats, and camelids) and want to maximize their pasture production through managed grazing. If you already have a grazing plan that is being underutilized, this class is for you as well.

We will take you through the process of writing a grazing plan. As a participant, you will complete the class with a functional grazing plan for YOUR farm and understand the principles behind it. This allows you to make changes to your plan when needed. Additionally, we will be writing these plans to include all the criteria needed for submission to NH NRCS for assistance through the EQIP program. If you would like, Daimon Meeh will help you review your plan to ensure it meets NRCS specifications. You would then bring your plan to a NRCS representative in your county to discuss how NRCS can help you with its implementation.

The class will be self-paced with online assignments and support. We will be using an online learning system similar in structure to an online forum, and it is our intent that there will be helpful interactions between the participants during the class.


Topics include
- Farm and Soil Mapping
- Soil Testing
- Animal Nutrition Needs
- Body Condition Scoring
- Fencing
- Theories of Grazing
- Rotation Schedule
- Forage Identification
