The program will enhance pedagogical content knowledge in science and mathematics for elementary teachers. Participating teachers will work with members of the Stony Brook faculty and other professionals to explore Real World applications that support content in the NY State Core Curriculum for Elementary Science and the P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics. Interactive activities and discussions will address approaches that can be used to incorporate the activities and field experiences into topics taught throughout the year.
Topics will include botany, physical science, earth science, nature study, DNA science, science literacy, math and others.
Teachers will receive a $300 stipend and a certificate for 30 professional development hours upon completion of the program. Travel expenses (up to $275) will be reimbursed for all participants. Room and board will also be provided, but not for residents of Suffolk & Nassau counties.Attendees will be expected to share the materials used in the workshop programs with other elementary teachers at their schools, in their school district, and beyond, through activities such as conducting workshops and presenting at conferences.
