TI Teachers Present Workshops at PittCon

Three TI teachers (Chad Bridle, Deanna Cullen, and Alice Putti) will be presenting workshops titled “Introducing Inquiry to your Science Class” and “Teaching Advanced Chemistry Topics Through Inquiry” at the 2013 PittCon Conference held in Pittsburgh, PA. The invitation to conduct the workshops came as a result of the high quality lessons that the TI teachers have developed.

Target Inquiry (TI) is a 2½-year program designed to meet the professional development needs of middle and high school science teachers for developing an inquiry-based science classroom. TI is for science teachers who wish to earn a Master of Education with an Emphasis in Advanced Content Specialization or complete the 15 credit certificate program. TI is designed to 1) provide teacher participants with an authentic science laboratory research experience, and 2) facilitate the integration of their research experience into their classroom through the design, implementation, and evaluation of inquiry-based curriculum.


Target Inquiry is funded by the National Science Foundation Divisions of Elementary, Secondary, and Informal Education (ESI-0553215) and Research on Leaning in Formal and Informal Settings (DRL-1118658), the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation 2005 Special Grant Program in the Chemical Sciences, and Grand Valley State University.

Any opinions, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in these materials are those of the TI project and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
