STEM CONNECTIONS NEWS OF THE DAY

 

August 16, 2002

 

 

  1. Course overview: We will start our last morning with an overview of the inquiry based teaching course. This will be followed by team meetings as originally planned.
  2. Food: Again we will have box lunches available at 9 for those teams needing them, and similar lunches for everyone else at noon. Snacks will be available as wanted.
  3. Reports: At 3:45 we will have progress reports in the form of poster presentation in the second floor hallway. These should be simple explanations of where the teachers are in their thinking about their own personal research project and in the classroom implementation. Keep the posters simple; there will no ribbons for excellence in poster art.
  4. Evaluation: Please complete the evaluation form, which reviews the entire week. This information is important since it will help us to improve the program.
  5. Future meetings: We all meet at the High School of Science and Technology in Springfield on Wednesday, September 4, 4 PM. Tentatively, we will meet with the Fellows on campus the day before, Tuesday, September 3.
