Middle School Life Science Teachers, Earn a $2,000 Stipend

by , posted on 11:44 AM, February 3, 2017
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 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
Thank you in advance for your interest and assistance. We look forward to hearing from you.
