Please join Johns Hopkins School of Education faculty member, Carolyn Parker, PhD, postdoctoral scholar Dr. Erica Smith, PhD student David McKinney and alumnus, Lee Shang (’96), faculty at McDonogh School, for a STEM-focused teaching experience. The workshop will include a 40-minute discussion on how constructivist learning theory should inform laboratory experiences, and then following a break, the session will resume with equipment instruction to help create effective laboratory experiments to meet learning objectives of your students.  Participants are asked to bring classroom science equipment that they would like to explore ideas on how to implement into their classroom instruction.
