Constructive curriculum

February 11th, 2014

The Engineering is Elementary Seed Leadership Project, funded by the Museum of Science, Boston (MoS) and led by Dr. Heidi Carlone, is a partnership between UNCG, Guilford County Schools, and Chatham County Schools. Last summer, fourth- and fifth-grade teachers engaged in professional development to learn about Engineering is Elementary (EiE), a curriculum by the MoS that engages elementary children in a wide range of engineering tasks, with real-world challenges and authentic integration with mathematics, science, literacy, and social studies. The teachers, mostly from existing Title 1 PDS schools for our elementary education program, implemented an EiE unit in the Fall 2013, and Carlone and her research team studied the implementation.

Conference: April 30, 2014

Proposals due: February 17, 2014

The Triad Teacher Researchers is a network of teachers dedicated to thoughtful teaching and learning.

We began as a group of four teachers who were looking for a supportive network of teacher researchers in the Triad area with the goal of impacting teacher and student learning through research. Our hope is to increase dialogue in central North Carolina about teacher research, create a community of supportive, passionate teachers, and to contribute to the professional body of knowledge about teaching and learning.
