Thank you for your interest in our one-of-a-kind professional development workshop designed to help incorporate authentic science research experiences on invasive species into your curriculum. Because of limited resources, participation is limited to 16 teachers who will be selected by the UF/IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants (CAIP).
- - Applications will be accepted from HIGH school classroom teachers.
- - Participants MUST apply in pairs. One participant per pair MUST be a former UF/IFAS CAIP Plant Camp graduate and one participant should have never attended Plant Camp. Each pair should teach in the same school district, preferably at the same school.
This workshop is funded as part of a USDA Education Research grant, and workshop participants will be asked to consent to serve as research participants, co-design student assessments in August 2017, implement the revised lesson in your classroom and help the CCD team conduct research on implementation in 2017-18.
Each individual participating teacher who completes the workshop, classroom implementation and research in 2017-18 will receive a $1000 participation stipend.
