Bakken Teacher Academy, June 19-22, Minneapolis

Science Learning from the Works of Scientists is a year-long program for middle- and high-school science teachers featuring history-of-science resources from The Bakken’s special collections library and contemporary science publications. The program consists of a four-day summer institute that continues with workshops during the school year. The summer institute engages participants in practices for reading informational text to enhance science students’ understanding of concepts as well as their critical thinking and communication skills. During the school year: participants apply what they learned to design, deliver and evaluate their own action research project for implementing effective reading practices in the science classroom.

Participants will earn four graduate credits in science education from Hamline University. A $270 stipend is provided for completing the full course, as well as books and other materials and metals/beverages. For more information visit this link.
