      Attention, teachers of physics, chemistry, physical science, & math!
      Grades 8 to 12, & TYC faculty.

      For summer 2013, ASU offers 8 STEM courses for your professional development.

      These courses can count towards the ASU interdisciplinary Master of
      Natural Science degree (MNS) and graduate degrees in education. Use
      for re-certification and/or to become highly qualified (NCLB) and to
      prepare to teach Dual Enrollment or AP/IB.

      Courses are aligned with Arizona Standards and with the NRC Framework
      for K-12 Science Education, including all eight science practices.
      Math instruction is integrated seamlessly by an emphasis on
      mathematical modeling, in accord with Common Core Math Standards.


      Two summer sessions: June and July. ( 3 credits unless otherwise noted)

               MODELING WORKSHOPS:

      * Great chem workshop.
      * It was, without a doubt, the single greatest professional
      development experience of my career.
      * I was extremely impressed with the course, the materials, and the
      instructors.  I can honestly say that this is the best course that I
      have taken in my journey to become a teacher.
             -- 8th grade teacher
      * ASU's summer program is a national treasure!  -- physics teacher
      * Thanks to taking physics modeling course work, I am highly
      qualified in physics.
      * I learned more about teaching and physics this summer than in 5
      years of college!
      * I LOVE this program!

         For 22 years, the Modeling Instruction Program has
      helped teachers attain knowledge and skills needed
      to benefit their students. Modeling Instruction is
      designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program
      by the U.S. Department of Education.
