Hi everybody! There are 9 of us doing the Annenberg course here in
Cherokee County, Georgia (just north of Atlanta). We purchased the
videotapes when the local PBS station decided not to carry them. We
have really been enjoying the mix of content and observation of
chemistry teachers actually at work doing inquiry activities. We are a
mix of 5 middle school science teachers and 4 HS science teachers. Our
school system is moving physical science to the MS and we have a number
of MS science teachers who want to refresh and improve their knowledge
of chemistry. Our school system sponsored the course and we are
receiving SDU's. Does anyone know a comparable course which would be
good for improving/refreshing physics knowledge for MS teachers?
We are also doing demonstration experiments and our discussions are a
blend of answering questions about science content, curriculum
development and plans, comparing notes about how we teach as
individuals, how we differ from school to school and teaching
methodology. I think we have all been "lurking" on the discussion board
so far so as the group coordinator I thought I would break the ice.
