Teaching AP/IB Biology/A&P Using a Case Studies Approach
July 15 - July 19$550
This workshop will run for 5 days in July 2019 in Asheville, NC. The goal of this workshop is for each teacher to be ready to conduct their advanced science class using prolonged, in-depth case studies. This workshop helps teachers develop the skills for leading students through a 1-2 month exploration of a single concept while covering 1/4 to 1/3 of the content and skills standards of the course. I will be using the Catalyst Learning Curricula Case Studies Series for Advanced Science as the examples for this workshop to model how a case study is developed to be comprehensive in instructional strategies, content, and skills. Although it is not required, teachers will be encouraged to write a case study of their own while they are attending the workshop for a topic of their own choosing.
