Scientist-Teacher Partnership (STP) Program


Upcoming Workshops!  Free, Register Now!

Half-day science workshop held in Westfield and Easton, MA  for elementary and middle school teachers. Registration is free and open until February 28.

Science from Scientists’ Scientist-Teacher Partnership (STP) program is designed to help elementary and middle school teachers feel more comfortable preparing for and leading hands-on science activities by providing guidance, resources, and time to incorporate field-tested lessons into existing curricula. This (free!) half-day workshop highlights a few of our most popular sessions from the longer, more in-depth STP Program. Participants will learn how to use the 5E Model of Teaching, how to teach a Science from Scientists lesson, and will be given time to reflect on how these tools can be integrated into their classroom.

Easton workshop: Saturday, March 23

Program Description

The Scientist-Teacher Partnership (STP) program is designed to help teachers feel more comfortable preparing and leading hands-on science activities by providing guidance, resources, and time to incorporate field-tested lessons into existing curricula.

STP consists of three parts led by our Scientist-Instructors: workshops on student-centered learning (i.e the 5E Instructional Model) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), modeling and practice of Science from Scientists’ lessons, and time to reflect and integrate practices and content into unit plans. Participants will leave with readily implementable activities, a suite of adaptable teaching strategies, and the support of the Science from Scientists instructional team.

To request the STP program in your district or school or to ask any questions, please email stp@sciencefromscientists.org.  For more information on this program, click here

 

See what classroom teachers have to say about the 5 day program:
“I thoroughly enjoyed taking this class. It was refreshing to discuss science skills and teaching concepts with other like minded adults. Unfortunately, many of my colleagues shy away from teaching science and say things like, “I’m not a science person.” Having the opportunity to discuss science on a deeper level felt empowering.”

“This program helped me grapple with new standards, work with others in the district, align curriculum vertically and totally change my thinking in teaching science. Specifically, the 5E model is a shift in the way science has been taught. It’s not just hands-on but discovery and explanation through hands-on science.”
