Teach STEM with Confidence
Teach a year of K-5 STEM with this comprehensive online program that includes professional development, mentoring, and lessons for each quarter.
Units that transform common elementary activities into robust, inquiry-based lessons that actively engage students in STEM and critical thinking.
Full units release August 2020.
In-person workshops on specific labs and activities. We also address topics such as instructional design, increasing student engagement, science education (with specific labs, standards interpretation, inquiry, etc.), instructional strategies, and evaluation.
Workshops may be delivered online, face-to-face, or blended and include evaluation components such as surveys and interviews to gauge participant interests, needs, and impact.
The cost of a workshop depends on the nature of the workshop, preparation time, and the number of attendees. Workshop packages are calculated based on: (1) hours of preparation time, (2) length of workshop, (3) materials, and (4) travel and lodging.
Most in-person workshop packages will normally take 3-4 hours of preparation time for every 1-hour of workshop implementation at a base rate of $125/hour for a group of 25. If additional team members are needed, add $90/workshop implementation hour for each team member. For face-to-face workshops, please factor in the cost of materials, travel, and accommodations.
We are happy to discuss workshop design with you and offer a variety of options to suit your needs and budget.
If you are new to course creation and have ideas for a course, workshop, or program that you would like to teach, this service is for you. We can help you organize your ideas into a working course framework and suggest strategies for effective instruction.
We will help you write out your course objectives, specific aims, and outcomes so that you have a very clear idea of what you want to teach and how you will structure your content to teach it.
You will develop an understanding of the knowledge/skill levels of students so that you can determine the appropriate level of rigor for your course. We will assist you in developing a course description that caters to your audience, and help you structure and organize your content into a logical flow that is easy for your students to learn.
This $200 package is for one course, workshop, or one generalized overview of a course sequence. It includes four back-and-forth emails where we work together to clarify your ideas prior to a 2-hour live Zoom session. At the end of this 2-hour session, you will receive a course outline with a clearly defined purpose and lesson objectives. This will be the backbone of your course. Course outline development will take between 1-2 weeks to create, depending on the frequency of your email responses and openings on the calendar.
This service is for you if you already have a course syllabus, a lesson plan, or have taught the class and are looking for: (a) insights, (b) ways to improve your instruction, and/or (c) alignment to standards.
We can help you:
- Improve student engagement and participation.
- Create effective and thought-provoking assignments and projects.
- Design skills-based presentations and assessments
- Segment content to facilitate optimal learning.
- Align your content to standards.
- Advocate and promote your course to administration or to students.
Because this service is case-specific, we will meet with you over the phone or through Zoom for a free thirty-minute consultation to discuss your needs. Once we have agreed upon the scope of work, we will be able to give you an estimate on the hours. You will be charged a rate of $90/hour.
Standards alignment will take a minimum of 3 hours for one lesson. We offer discounted rates for K-12 teachers. Your payment upon receipt of the invoice reserves your spot.
