Dear Fellow Educator,
We are looking for 10
middle school life science teachers (grades 6-9) to field-test BSCS's Three-Dimensional Teaching and Learning for Middle School Science (3DMSS),
an NSF-funded unit on body systems with professional development for teachers.
3DMSS, developed in collaboration with Oregon Public Broadcasting, incorporates:
- an emphasis on using evidence to construct an understanding of disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts
- video-based lesson analysis professional development
- rich media experiences to promote understanding of difficult concepts
Field-test teachers are critical in helping us design and improve programs like 3DMSS.
The field test runs September 2017 to December 2018. Teachers will receive a $2,000 stipend over the two academic years for their participation.
If you are interested in being a field-test teacher, visit www.bscs.org/3DMSS-field-test for more information and to apply online.
Deadline to apply: March 1, 2017. Please complete your application as soon as possible. We will begin reviewing applications as they are received.
If you know a colleague who may be interested, please share this information.
Questions? Please contact Jon Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your interest and assistance. We look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely, Susan Kowalski
Senior Research Scientist, Project Director
