Description

Introduction to Modeling Instruction

July 10 - 14, 2017

Leader: Mark Schober

During this one-week introduction to the principles of Modeling Instruction we’ll introduce several aspects of modeling such as facilitating student discourse, the modeling cycle, multiple representations in problem solving, and model-based curriculum design. We will explore these ideas by exploring content from several cross-cutting-concepts such as examining the role of energy, electricity, and light in biological and physical science contexts at middle and high school levels. You'll be able to experiment with these teaching tools right away, but you'll also have a sense of what you could gain by taking a full three-week workshop.

The workshop will engage you in selected "student-mode" activities embodying Modeling Instruction(TM). This will include one or two trips through the "modeling cycle" (paradigm experiment, development of model through whiteboarding and discussion, and model deployment). You will also participate in "teacher-mode" discussions of the pedagogy involved and of how you might try out elements of Modeling Instruction(TM) in your classroom. Examples will be chosen from physics, chemistry, and/or middle school science, depending upon the experience, background and interest of participants.

This one-week workshop provides a basic overview and a limited amount of experience with the elements of Modeling Instruction(TM); however, it is not a full Modeling Instruction(TM) Workshop satisfying the criteria for such workshops established by the American Modeling Teachers Association.


Schedule and Location: The workshop will run for 1 week (July 10, 2017 - July 14, 2017) in Manhattan, at Teachers College, Columbia University (Zankel Hall Rm 404, 525 West 120 St., New York, NY 10027). The workshop sessions will be from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm Mon - Thurs and Friday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, followed by an optional social hour from 3:30 to 4:30.

Photographs and Video Recordings: We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.

If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded - you must inform us at check-in. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you.
