Teacher Professional Development Series: Get Energized! Module Formative Evaluation Report

May 1st, 2007 | EVALUATION

The purpose of the Museum of Science and Industry’s new Teacher Professional Development Series (TPDS) is to improve student performance in science by enhancing their teachers’ science content knowledge, instructional strategies, and museum skills. By combining solid content, hands-on classroom activities, inquiry-based instruction, and tools for a successful Museum visit, the Museum seeks to assist 4th-8th grade teachers who want to help students explore basic science concepts in new and engaging ways.
The major goals for the overall Teacher Professional Development Series are as follows: (1) Teachers will experience a positive change in Content Knowledge; (2) Teachers will experience a positive change in Instructional Practice (Classroom Pedagogy); and (3) Teachers will experience a positive change in Museum Skills.
