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)
June 10-28: PHS 530/PHY 480: Methods of Teaching Physics I
(modeling workshop/mechanics. Jeff Steinert, 8-3:30MTWTh. 8-12F)
June 10-28: PHS 594/PHY 494: Electricity for MIddle/Secondary Teachers

(James Archambault, Friday afternoons in July at ASU-Tempe)
* 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.
The American Modeling Teachers Assn (AMTA) is expanding the work:
