Inquiry Teaching Methods: Grounding STEM Education Programs in Science Practices
Thursday, 02/11/2016 (03:30 PM - 06:30 PM)


- January 7, 14, 21, February 4, 11, March 10 from 3:30 PM - 6:30 PM
- January 30 from 9:00 AM - 3:00 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.

 

All classes will be held in Room 329 at UNH Manchester.
