with the National Science Education Standards for Professional Development
for Teachers of Science, our programs provide teachers with opportunities
for intellectual professional growth.
- We provide teachers with the skills necessary
for them to guide their students to learn essential science content
through the perspectives and methods of inquiry.
- Our professional development program and activities
stress differentiated learning and involve application of knowledge
of pedagogy and what is known about human learning from a number
of scientific disciplines.
- We show teachers how to build in themselves and
their students understanding and skills for lifelong learning.
- Our programs share the vision of coherency and
integration by alignment with National
Science Education Standards (NSES), collaboration,
continuous assessment, recognition of teacher characteristics,
and building understanding and ability over time.
