Continuing education opportunity for Physics and Physical Science teachers to be offered at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls, in conjunction with AAPT's PTRA program.
This workshop will be of particular interest to teachers whose districts are already planning for the adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Forces and Interactions: NGSS for Physics and Physical Science Teachers
June 16-27, 2014 M-F 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
The Physics department at the University of Wisconsin - River Falls and the American Association of Physics Teachers' PTRA program have provided in service teachers with high quality, in depth, and useful educational experiences for nearly 30 years. This two week workshop focuses on teaching Physics and Physical Science courses that help students meet and exceed the Next Generation Science Standards for Forces and Interactions. Emphasis will be on Physics content knowledge, active learning techniques, and engineering design applications specific to the NGSS. The course is jointly taught by university faculty and AAPT's Physics Teaching Resource Agents (PTRAs). The workshop may be taken as continuing education or to earn 3 graduate credits.
