What is better than a good mystery? Intrigue and excite your students by turning everyday content into something they will not forget. Join us on February 5th, 2011 from 9am – 3pm for a day of training with The Science House of NC State University in Raleigh. We will use probeware to figure out which way the suspect went, what type of glass was broken and much more. These labs may be used to address topics in physics, chemistry, physical science, earth science, and biology and are aligned to the NCSCOS.

Inquiry for Grades K-5

March 12, 2011

Located at the NC Arboretum in Asheville, NC

Lead Instructor: Michelle Benigno, Asheville Satellite Outreach Coordinator

Bring a student’s mind to life! “Sit-and-get” lessons become a thing of the past as you transform your classroom into a center of active learning by being a “guide-on-the-side”. This workshop is designed to increase teacher awareness of standards-based instruction with a focus on inquiry-based pedagogy and integrated learning. Teachers develop their own definition of inquiry while exploring different levels of inquiry instruction. During the inquiry-based activities, teachers will learn techniques of questioning to support the discovery process. Participants will also learn how to shift their current science lessons toward inquiry. This workshop is appropriate for Elementary School Teachers
