To Receive Science Grant
The K20 Center for Educational and Community Renewal at the University of Oklahoma has selected the recipients of the 2010-2011 Oklahoma Science PDI Grant. Collinsville Middle School is among seven recipients of this year's grant that supports quality science instruction in Pre-K through 8th grade schools in the state of Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Science PDI is a whole-school grant initiative that assists teachers in improving science instruction by providing intensive training in science content and inquiry processes along with FOSS science kits. The Science PDI is administered by the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation and is funded by the Oklahoma State Legislature.
Science teachers at Collinsville Middle School will attend a summer training session in July and participate in monthly professional development sessions during the 2010-11 school year that focus on science learning through inquiry methods. The school will receive science equipment in the form of kits that focus on basics in science processes, chemistry, and meteorology. The school will also receive mini laptop computers for the teachers to use for networking and instruction.
Schools chosen for the grant submitted a competitive application that requires the science team to articulate their vision for science learning and their goals as a learning community. The emphasis of the grant is on building a community of learning focused on the improvement of science education. Schools receiving the grant demonstrate a commitment to quality science learning focused on the needs of students and an understanding of the skills required for achievement in the 21st century.
