Professional Development Workshops

This integrated workshop models effective science teaching in a simulated classroom learning environment.

Based on the needs of north Texas K-12 classroom teachers, the 6-hour Saturday sessions will make a positive contribution to Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex air quality in 2004 by encouraging curriculum implementation to promote air quality awareness in public schools.

Aligned to state standards, teachers will earn 6 hours of professional development training that count toward TEEAC recognition.
