AMTA Modeling Biology:  An introduction to Biology Modeling Instruction pedagogy and implementation. Participants work through modeling cycles to build coherence in biology big ideas and develop a storyline. Participants are supported in the Modeling Instruction through teacher notes and curriculum that supports the implementation of model building, The course will focus on the traditional topics of a yearlong general biology course (classification, cell structure/function, growth and reproduction, ecology, evolution, energy flow: micro to macro, heredity). The Modeling Method has been shown to be a highly effective extension of the traditional three-step learning cycle (observe, generalize, apply). The modeling cycle addresses deficiencies of the learning cycle by assisting students to construct understanding from observations, confronting student preconceptions, examining student thought processes through “whiteboarding” and Socratic dialoguing. Participants will receive printed and electronically stored versions of the Biology Modeling Handbook and ancillary materials.

Registration has now opened for these workshops. Here is the link to register. You will be able to choose which workshop you will be attending in the questions listed in the registration link.

Pricing: AMTA Workshops are $1050 for two weeks with a residential option to stay on campus for $699 in one of our apartment style dormitories.

If you need an invoice because your school district will be registering for you and paying directly, please reach out to Kristi Reklinski

Chemistry

Chemistry I at Baldwin-Wallace

Dates: July 8 – 19, 2024

Location: Baldwin-Wallace U,  Berea, OH

Workshop: Chemistry I

Instructors: Teresa Marx, Holly McTernan

For further information contact Lauren Scotta

This workshop in chemistry is for high school teachers. The workshop is designed to promote an understanding of models and modeling pedagogy which will enable students to learn concepts in chemistry from the perspective of systematically developed particle models of matter. Instructional strategies include a coherent approach to the role of energy in a physical and chemical change.

Registration has now opened for these workshops. Here is the link to register. You will be able to choose which workshop you will be attending in the questions listed in the registration link.

Dates: July 8 – 19, 2024

Location: Baldwin-Wallace U,  Berea, OH

Workshop: PhysicsMechanics

Instructors: Jeremy Secaur, Bryan Battaglia

For More Information: contact Lauren Scotta

AMTA Modeling Physics Mechanics: This workshop in physics is for high school teachers.  Middle school teachers who want a better understanding of the physical science content they must teach may also find the workshop helpful. The workshop focuses on pedagogical as well as content knowledge and the skills needed to effectively teach high school mechanics. The Modeling Method of Instruction workshop gives teachers practical experience organizing their classroom and content around scientific models and practices the techniques of facilitating effective inquiry and discussion in the science classroom. Content includes Newton’s laws, cross-curricular modeling of energy storage and transfer with emphasis on mechanical energy storage and transfer, momentum, and basic models in kinematics and dynamics (free particle, constantly accelerating particle).
