We are excited to work with our returning Project SING fellows and our new fellows! With the summer institutes just around the corner, we’re finishing our lab kits and making some great new curriculum development resources. We’re looking forward to a great summer!
In our final institute, our fellows spent time reviewing the EQuIP rubric and how these guidelines can be utilized within their own lesson plans.
We also spent time revising lesson plans submitted at the beginning of this project, and sharing how the lesson plans changed as a result of the Project SING experience.
We had an amazing and successful first year with our “original” fellows and are looking forward to the start of Year 2 as well as our new cohort of incoming fellows this summer!
Our fellows discussed explanation and argumentation as they relate to Science and Engineering Practices.
They also explored connections to the TEAM innovation program in CT and how Project Sing supports those efforts.
We had a great day and enjoyed seeing and hearing from our fellows!
The Connecticut Office of Higher Education, Teacher Quality Partnership Grant Program has fully funded Project SING for year 2! We are very excited to continue working with our Year 1 Fellows and start the experience over with a new group of teachers.
Let the fun science learning and teacher development begin again!
