Abstract Title: Southwest Ohio Science Institutes: A Partnership Model for Professional Development
Abstract: I am in the third year of an Ohio Math Science Partnership (OMSP) called the Southwest Ohio Science Institutes (SOSI). I am working with faculty from several area universities and curriculum specialists from many school districts to plan and deliver professional development to hundreds of teachers each summer. The Math Science Partnerships are funded by the No Child Left Behind Act and administered by the states. They require partnerships between science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) faculty and school districts. I will describe the partnership we have as we run SOSI, paying special attention to the contributions of STEM faculty. Faculty help plan the institutes, review curriculum, help deliver instruction, and participate in "Ask a Scientist" and "Ask a Mathematician" programs during the school year.
