Mass Audubon offers professional development workshops designed for active participation and practical application in the classroom, whether virtual or in-person. Teachers can attend workshops offered on a variety of topics or our education staff can design a workshop to meet your specific needs.
Workshops are designed to increase content knowledge, provide teachers with hands-on STEM-focused learning experiences, practice with instructional tools and offer resources for teaching engaging science lessons in the schoolyard or classroom. We use teaching and learning methods associated with inquiry-based instruction while helping teachers navigate standards and curriculum alignment.
In this week-long summer intensive, K-8 science teachers will immerse themselves in science by exploring their local habitat and meaningfully connecting with the science practices embedded in the Massachusetts Science Frameworks. Participants will practice inquiry-based learning methods through hands-on exploration of local habitats, field research, and an investigation design process they can bring back to their classrooms.
