Description: 

CLC Professional Development What does "inquiry" really mean? How can I organize my teaching materials and assessment materials to demonstrate how I'm helping my students meet the MLR? What are some new ways I can teach old curriculum using "space" as an attention-grabber for my students? These are the types of the questions we will address in a wide variety of professional development workshops at the Challenger Learning Center. As former classroom teachers ourselves, we know what tools you need to make your life a little easier in the classroom and that's one of our goals. So contact the Center or watch our web calendar for these PD opportunities. CEU's will be offered for nearly all of our offerings. Curriculum Coordinators workshop A one day (date TBA) workshop is being planned for Curriculum Coordinators throughout Maine. As the Challenger Learning Center of Maine makes plans for future teacher workshops, we'd like to gather together all of the ideas and needs of our state's curriculum professionals to help us tailor our offerings to teachers. Assessment strategies, inquiry based learning, use of technology, materials matched to the MLR's-just let us know what you think your teachers need, and we'll do the work for you. Not only are we a Center for space simulation experiences for middle schools students, but we're a developing resource for professional development. Type of Organization: Museums and Science Centers; Event Date Notes: TBD; Audience: K-12 educators
