Middle school teachers (grades 6-8) will have the opportunity to acquire and enhance their content knowledge with 60 hours of professional development in the areas of Matter and Energy. Teachers will evaluate and improve their instructional strategies throughout the year in the areas of:

    • Formative Assessment,
    • Differentiation,
    • Argument-Driven Inquiry, and
    • Project-Based Learning 

    In each of the workshops, teachers will utilize technology as a tool to enhance science teaching and learning.
