STEM teachers working on a project together

Project Laboratory: NYS Living Environment Labs Make-Over Edition

Open to: STEM Teachers

Opportunity at a Glance: The NYS Living Environment contains four required labs that are tested on the regents exams. These lab experiences are cookie-cutter in nature – but do they have to be? Want to see a glimpse of how these labs could be made interactive and Socratic in nature, thus engaging students and promoting learning? Join us as we explore these labs and see how they can be made more inquiry-based while retaining the necessary goals set out in the Living Environment curriculum. Participants can expect to perform labs as “students” and witness teaching strategies that emphasize the inquiry nature of science as well as leave with classroom ready resources. CTLE is available for this session. Cost: $19.99. 

Key dates: Sunday, December 8, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Location: Teachers College, 525 W120th Street, Zankel Hall.

Registration deadline: December 8.
