15350 - Introduction to Modeling Biology - Cullowhee

Modeling Instruction provides professional development in secondary science through a research-based, reform-oriented pedagogy. Modeling helps correct the many weaknesses of the lecture-demonstration method found in many classrooms, including the fragmentation of knowledge, student passivity, and the persistence of naive beliefs about the physical world. Scientists learn by doing; they construct and deploy models of the real world and test their ability to predict new phenomena. The student-centered Modeling classroom focuses on turning students into scientists to replicate this process. This program will introduce teachers to the instructional methods and units in Modeling Biology.
