MSP Grant

We believe that our middle school science teachers should be collaborative with colleagues throughout the district as well as in other districts. Many of our middle school science teachers had the opportunity to be part of the 3-year Math-Science Partnership (MSP) Grant in collaboration with Volusia and Okeechobee counties. The purpose of this project was to increase the academic achievement of students in science by:

· facilitating lesson study for science teachers in professional learning communities,

· providing professional development to science teachers on using technology to assess students,

· assist teachers in increasing student engagement and incorporating cooperative learning strategies

· improve the science teachers’ content knowledge by partnering science teachers with scientists from three institutes of higher learning, and

· develop and share a bank of rigorous 5E model lessons that are aligned to Florida’s standards for science and mathematics, as well as the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards.
