The Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Program at Waynesburg University will offer two sessions of a face-to-face Level II workshop for teachers interested in accessing primary sources for addressing STEM topics.
“Using Primary Sources to Address Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) across the Curriculum” will be offered Saturday, April 11, and Saturday, April 25, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Waynesburg University Southpointe location, and again Saturday, April 18, and Saturday, May 2, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Waynesburg University main campus.
Participants will earn up to 15 PDE CEU hours, with an option to earn ten more post-course. Throughout the course, participants can expect to engage and connect with the Library’s STEM content and resources. Participants can also expect:
- Peer collaboration and discussion
- Investigation of the changing nature of science and technology and how they affect society
- Project development and critique of STEM activities for the classroom
- Familiarity with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Pennsylvania Core Standards
Participants who have not completed TPS level I will be asked to complete a 12-hour prerequisite, TPS BASICS, before Wednesday, April 1. Login information will be provided upon registration for TPS Level II: STEM.
Space is limited. Register online before Wednesday, March 25, at http://tps.waynesburg.edu/upcoming-pd-events.
