S3T3 Grant Details...

 Super Science for Special Teachers Utilizing Unit and Universal Design Through Technology (S3T3) provides an opportunity for selected Special Education teachers from high need public and private schools from Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne counties who wish to become HQT in science.

Through the development of a professional learning community, interactions will occur using several resources including: the new Michigan Science Content Expectations, Connecting With the Learner Equity Toolkit, Inquiry Within, Taking Science to School and Understanding by Design. Teaching strategies, utilization of technology in the classroom, benchmarks of instruction and assessments will be developed.

Each teacher will create a 5 E lesson plan which will be presented to peers and then to their classroom while being observed by grant facilitators. Lessons and artifacts will be posted to the S3T3 web site. This project partners Central Michigan University and Lawrence Technological University. LEAs’ include MISD, Mt. Clemens, Van Dyke, Chippewa Valley Public Schools and Ben Ross, Great Lakes, Conner Creek and Reach Academies.

Twenty five teachers will constitute the 3 cohorts and could earn 5 graduate credits or 140+ hours of professional development if they choose. This grant includes five members from S3T Cohorts 1+2 to serve as mentors.

 Curious about where we might be headed?
