A series of Content Area Institutes promoting 3-Dimensional Teaching

Extending beyond four-hour workshops while maintaining Jeffers education practices

Motivated teachers will take part in investigations, journal writing, and more in a way that can be translated into their curriculum.

They’ll learn through:
  • writing
  • working in groups in the field
  • journaling
  • collecting and analyzing data
  • and communicating about their learning through verbal and written work

The central focus of the new science standards is 3-dimensional teaching

  • practices
  • crosscutting concepts
  • core ideas
Our outdoor classroom methods used along with investigations focused on pattern, structure/function, and more while working with ecological systems, birds, insects, etc. will help teachers provide meaningful science lessons for students that will address standards as well as connect science to other disciplines with the use of journaling.
