FOR PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY TEACHERS: Modeling Instruction Institute – MI2 (pending final funding approval) A Joint Chemistry and Physics Workshop by Fort Hays State University and Emporia State University – July6-23 (Monday – Thursday). FHSU and ESU are offering a 3-week workshop for high school physical science teachers that enhances student learning and performance in physics and chemistry. Modeling improves inquiry, critical and creative thinking, cooperative learning, use of technology in the classroom, AND it is correlated to the science standards. The physics portion of the workshop is being held at FHSU, the chemistry portion at ESU. In addition to learning this extremely effective means of teaching science participants will receive: a technology package, tuition scholarship, daily stipend, housing and parking, and funds to attend KATS in 2010. Multi-year participants will have support to attend NSTA in 2010. The program is limited to 24 physics and 24 chemistry teachers.
