Are you a middle school (grades 6-8) STEM teacher with an interest in incorporating or expanding the use of scientific and geospatial data in your classroom? Would you like to be part of research to discover how arts-based instructional techniques can facilitate students’ observation and interpretation of data visualizations in ways that meet curricular needs and improve data literacy?
The Building Insights through Observation project invites you to apply to receive professional development, connections, and resources for using arts-based instructional approaches to incorporate geospatial datasets in your classroom to help students deepen understanding of STEM concepts and build critical thinking and data literacy skills.
Teacher partners will be expected to co-develop, iteratively test, and engage in reflection about the arts-based techniques over a 2-year partnership with our team. Teachers will receive up to $4000 for their participation (June 2023 to June 2024) as well as travel stipends to attend workshops each summer (2023 and 2024).
Find more details and the application HERE. Deadline for applications is October 15th, 2022.
