Focus on intensive high quality professional development needs related to aligning classroom curricula with Indiana’s Academic Standards and Indiana’s Core Standards in English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and/or Social Studies;
Focus on increasing the use of an applied approach to increase the interest and participation in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) through project-based learning (i.e., Project Lead the Way);
Focus on engaging more students in rigorous science and mathematics courses and support the elimination of lower level mathematics and science classes such as Basic Math or General Math;
Focus on strategies to increase the “high achievement pipeline,” including working with Advanced Placement, dual credit and International Baccalaureate teachers in core academic subject areas, so that more students have the opportunity to progress to and be successful in higher-level coursework.
Focus on aligning Indiana high school curricula with the first-year of study at Indiana’s colleges and universities;
Focus on teaching of scientifically-based readinginstruction; and
Focus on increasing the number of “highly-qualified” minority teachers and/or teachers of under-represented groups in Indiana schools.
Standards-Based Integrated Science Instruction (Purdue University + multiple LEAs)
Uses inquiry-based instruction model
Pose a question at the beginning of the intensive training that teachers work to solve over the course of the next year.
Integrates Core Standards in a science-centered curriculum-model
At the end, they have curriculum to use in their own classroom, an increased understanding of the standards (particularly science in elementary grades) and grant written to sustain efforts in their classroom.
Teachers receive graduate level credit (3 hours)
Purdue provides science education instruction and supplies
