TEACHER TRAINING AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
I am offering one of my most popular classes, "Space Science Essentials," through the Lewis and Clark College Graduate School of Education.
When: NOW! The intended audience is school teachers who have been assigned to teach astronomy this school year and who need a crash course. But anyone is welcome. The course will be individualized for each participant. Star parties will begin the first week of August.
Format: Partly online asynchronous, partly online Zoom, partly in the field at night. Mostly what works for you..
Cost: $350 for graduate level credit. $250 without credit. 15 hours of contact time. 15 more hours of work for graduate level credit. That will be working with me to design your course.
While this is designed for beginning educators, veteran educators and non-educators are welcome and encouraged. Self-motivated and mature high schoolers thorugh retired folks and everyone in-between is welcome.
I also act as a "science teacher coach." Schools or individual teachers can hire me to work with them to improve their science teaching. I provide coaching, curriculum, guest lessons, co-teaching, and supplies. Details are worked out on a case-by-case basis.
TEACHER COACHING RATES
1 participant = $75/hour
2 participants = $100/hour = $50/hour each
3 participants = $120/hour = $40/hour each
4 participants = $140/hour = $35/hour each
more = work out the details, but likely about $30/hour each.
