Leader: Chris Resch
“I love Modeling Instruction but can’t seem to bring it into my AP/IB/Honors Biology classroom.” If you have felt this sentiment before, you are not alone. Modeling Instruction has transformed the landscape of science education and many educators have been adopting the pedagogy. But how can such a pedagogy be used in such content heavy classes such as AP Biology?
Come and join us for this webinar; the goal of which is to provide a glimpse of how Modeling Instruction can be incorporated into an Advanced Biology course! Workshop leader Chris Resch will share tools and curricula he and his colleagues have developed, which are compatible with Modeling Instruction.
