Teacher Training

 


Teacher training sessions are being undertaken in collaboration with the below entities. These training sessions involve hands-on exposure/experience to new technologies and educational materials. The ultimate goal of the sessions is for teachers to disseminate these materials and objectives within their classrooms at their respective schools. Participants include middle and high school teachers from the Greater Houston Area, including Aldine, Galena Park, and Houston Independent School Districts. Through future funding, we plan to make all developed curriculum accessible interactive online from the C2SDS’s website (www.uhd.edu/ccsds).

Project SKYMath This is a joint project of NASA and NSF. Training sessions are offered to teachers for use of the 16 classroom activities of SKYMath, which is an effective and innovative way to present elements of the middle school mathematics curriculum.

NASA – Urban Outreach Program in Space Science Through this grant, a weeklong training session is conducted during summers. NASA scientists and master teachers train PREP teachers and program assistants before the program begins. PREP teachers implement the NASA materials into their curriculum to prepare students to develop science projects for NASA Day within PREP.

Houston ISD – HU-LINC C2SDS seeks grants each summer to conduct weeklong teacher training seminars for Houston ISD secondary teachers to integrate mathematics and technology into middle schools.

University of Houston-Downtown Teacher training is conducted using materials from previous training. The following sessions are provided: 1) Each April, for high school teachers chaperoning teams in the Annual High School Programming and Mathematics Contests at UHD; 2) Training sessions, prior to week of Houston PREP each year, for the program instructors and program assistants (To enhance the Houston PREP program, we have enhanced the training sessions to better prepare the program staff, especially in Logic, calculator use, online material, engineering, and technology).
