What you'll learn:

The Modeling Instruction TM Leadership Workshop trains experienced Modeling Instruction teachers to lead workshops for other teachers. The Leadership Workshop sharpens participants’ understanding of the Modeling philosophy and pedagogy as well as the features of curricula that support the Modeling philosophy. The workshop also develops participants’ skills with tools for leading adults while providing logistical tips and assistance for organizing, promoting, and running workshops, and managing ongoing support.

As school districts look for science teaching practices compatible with the NGSS, demand continues to grow for high quality teacher training and curriculum materials as provided by Modeling Instruction.
