Professional development

Learning Modeling Instruction in Biology for Strong Student Understanding

I need to attend this workshop to explore the teaching method known as Modeling Instruction. It will improve and deepen my students' understanding of crucial concepts in biology.

My Students

My students are not only interested in and motivated to learn the material, but they also put great work into assimilating it to their own experience and developing their own ideas about the concepts we discuss. They embody the fine character of strong inquisition and industriousness in learning. I am deeply impressed by my students' desire to critically think about the concepts and apply them to their futures.

My students are bright, with a natural intelligence, energy, determination, and hope.

My Project

As a participant, I will spend time observing instruction from the point of view of a student, a key component in reinforcing the connections between content and pedagogical knowledge.

During this session, I will engage in thought-provoking, pertinent experiments that I can utilize in my own classroom.

Through this experience, I will learn strategies to incorporate into my own classroom using the claim, evidence, reasoning framework as a tool to probe student preconceptions and misconceptions.

I will observe how this engaging approach promotes student-centered, sense-making confidence and appreciation for the nature of science. STEMteachersNYC cultivates excellence in STEM teaching and promotes deep understanding and success for students through innovative, teacher-led professional development.
