Workshop Title: Danielson's Framework and Modeling Physics: Energy Unit.
Moderators: J Pravin Kumar, Seth Guiñals-Kupperman
Description: If you are a NYC Regents Physics or Regents Chemistry teacher and feeling a little lost between APPR Plans and Danielson's Rubric, then you are not alone. But why re-work old lessons just to meet a DOE checklist when there is a ready-made solution that speaks to Danielson's Framework and goes above and beyond what the city is asking for.
Join and learn with fellow NYC teachers what thousands of other teachers are already using: A method of science instruction that meets all of Danielson's Domain 2 (classroom environment) and Domain 3 (Instruction) practices. In this workshop you will experience an introduction to Modeling Instruction, a teacher-developed, research-based pedagogy which allows both teachers and students to play a more active role in the classroom. You will see how Modeling Instruction facilitates group work, hands-on and minds-on learning, and allows the teacher to facilitate student learning.
Is there a fee to attend this workshop?
Yes. There is a $10 attendance fee.
Is there a special pricing for TC students for this workshop?
Yes. TC students recieve a 50% discount on PTNYC workshops. To recieve your discount code, please send an email to Zhanna Glazenburg (email@example.com). You will be asked to present a current TC student card at the door on the day of the workshop.

When & Where
STEMteachersNYC was originated in summer of 2011 by a group of teachers as a teacher-led physics study group. The founders were all practitioners of Modeling Instruction, developed by university and high school physics teachers over the past 20 years through a collaborative process that continues as one of the primary activities of the American Modeling Teachers Association. STEMteachersNYC is affiliated with the AMTA and conducts 3-week summer modeling workshops as well as monthly 3-hour meetings on weekends during the school year. PTNYC is devoted to excellence in science teaching with a general focus on modeling instruction and similar approaches.
Modeling Instruction. The use of modeling in teaching was pioneered by Robert Karplus in his 1969 textbook, "Introductory Physics: A Modeling Approach. Modeling Instruction was subsequently developed at Arizona State University by David Hestenes, Malcom Wells, and Gregg Swackhamer, as well as by many others across the country. Over 500 teachers have taken teacher-led Modeling Instruction workshops in the summer, and the best way to learn about Modeling Instruction is by taking a summer workshop. If you'd like to read more about it, go to American Modeling Teachers Association or take a look at the Chapter 1 of Introductory Physics by Robert Karplus.
