2007 GSA Denver Paper # 202-10 Professional Development for the Professional Developers: Aspects of Effective Teacher Professional Development Programs in the Earth Sciences


How can a professional development program be designed to address the multiple and varied needs of teachers of Earth Science? It …

  • Should be based on combination of science content and practical classroom applications

  • Should provide combination of “live” and Internet-based resources

  • Should foster scientist-teacher interactions

  • Should enable “master teachers” to mentor less experienced colleagues

  • Should stimulate additional learning opportunities
